Hello, guests. In the process of a security and site performance overhaul, we had to delete most user accounts and comments. We apologize for any inconvenience but felt we needed a more secure platform before going live.
Thank you for your patience. New and updated plans for jump-starting your children’s retirements will be posted soon. Please visit often and post your comments and questions.
The Best Time to Prepare is Yesterday
The Worst Time to Prepare is Tomorrow
The Only Real Time to Prepare is Now
Our goal at the Family Freedom Fund is to help as many people as possible enjoy great retirements. Our biggest struggle is how difficult it often is to convince people to commit to retirement saving and investing NOW. The sad reality of waiting too long, if at all, to start is that most Americans save far less than half of what they need for a comfortable retirement, and many don’t save at all.
The truth is that if you have already waited too long to prepare for retirement, it is too late for easy low-cost solutions for you, but not for your grandchildren, children or younger loved ones. The simple math is that the investment to fully fund a great retirement for a pre-school child is less than 5% of what someone that waits until middle age to prepare will need. In fact, someone starting at age 40 now will have to save more every year for 25 years than a child born now would need to save only once to fully fund a good retirement.
The comparison above was for a child and a different 40 year old starting to save at the same time. If you compare the cost for funding a newborn vs waiting to fund that same individual 40 years later, it is much worse because that newborn will retire 40 years later than the first example when inflation will make the cost of living or retiring many times more.
By action or omission we either choose to start when our children are very young and it only seems impossible to to save, or to wait until their 40s or later when it actually will be nearly impossible to save the much, much that will be needed then for a healthy retirement. Starting early is the smart and affordable choice.
If you are already over 10, don’t give up. We have creative ideas for making your money work smarter now and for your future. With our help and economy of scale you can target larger earnings while maintaining the security of diversification. We employ only financial experts with proven track records of beating the markets and the true rate of inflation. Please know that your future will become your NOW sooner than you think and the choices, actions and in-actions you make now control whether the last half of your life will be lived comfortably or with regret.
I’m going off topic a bit, but not too far… TED.com is one of my favorite Edutainment sites. TED hosts thousands of short videos by proponents of “Ideas Worth Spreading”. There are videos in many categories including Technology and Science, Business and Finance, Politics, History, Music and the Arts, Psychology, Health and Medicine, Nature, Architecture, Awe Inspiring and more. Maybe, there will be one about Family Freedom Fund and affordable retirement. <]:^)
Most TED videos are entertaining and enlightening, all are informative and educational. Many are like the best university lectures, the kind that do not put you to sleep. Back to my focus here, I recently did a search on Ted for “Retirement” and got back 629 results. Given how hard it is for us to focus on something as intangible as our futures, I hope that you will indulge yourself with a few of these entertaining videos to help your subconscious realize that your future will soon be your NOW and the retirement choices we make now determine the quality of the second half of the adult lives of our families.

Quick Silver’s goal is to help Savers build healthy long-term saving habits. We know you can but too many tell us that they don’t think they can. We listened and added Quick Silver incentives to prove you can.
Quick Silver also removes risk with our 1st year, no-questions-asked, full refund guarantee. If you save and store with FFF and decide that saving Silver and Gold is not for you, you can close your account and choose a full refund or have us ship your coins to you at cost.

I am not a fan of the “Too Big to Fail” concept but am moved by the fact that retirement is needlessly failing for millions. Over 64 million Americans depend on Social Security and I think most feel betrayed. Still, a Bail-Out in the usual sense is not a solution.
Everyone loves, and hates, Social Security. The problem is that our politicians and SSA’s management, knowing that Social Security was never designed to be a sufficient retirement plan, Bailed Out decades ago. In their minds, SS is not designed to be a full retirement plan, so no effort to “fix” it is needed. Millions of Americans retiring into poverty is simply not on their viewscreen.
This one excuse bureaucratically justifies all of the otherwise solvable problems that result in Social Security’s failure as a retirement plan. It would be easy to fix but for the larger problem that Social Security is now a gigantic Politically (Mis)-Managed Bureaucracy. Politicians use it to buy votes with implied services, most of which are never fulfilled.
The Canada Pension Plan was originally modeled after our Social Security System. When they realized the plan was flawed and, like ours, would soon fail, they did something our government apparently has never seriously considered. They fixed it! It was easy. They switched to non-government, for profit management tailored and monitored for positive, better than inflation returns. Their payouts and reserves have grown steadily.
We can afford a much better Financial Security System. We need only sternly remind OUR government that fiscal responsibility and serving our best interests and priorities is in their best interest.
Investment Results are controlled by three factors:
The Amount Invested. Increasing the next 2 is easier.;
The Interest Rate of profit. Below Inflation does not work.;
The Growth Time for Investments. Time is the most powerful.
Increase Rate and Time (by which I mean save sooner, not retire later), we can reduce the Amount required and still have Much Larger Payouts. Pay Less, Get More, Why Not?
