SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9/J960. THE GOLDEN YEARS THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT KRESS, 10GANSPORT, INDIANA How To Fix Things To Retire At 60 By THOMAS COLLINS Retirement at age 65, as you-have probably figured out. by now, is'not something thaf was. designed by," or for,.the 65-year-old people. . ..',.You could shut your-eyes and p.ick"almost'-''any other age,. . . and set up.a happier retirerrient time. Age 65,'is. a little too late for most-people to'start again! and a little too-soon J to stop. '.Mr. Arthur Williamson is going to do^ something about this. Not for you or for me. But for Mr. Williamson. .. ..-•.' • ' -.' .. •;'"•'" . .."-I am:'5¥.-M'y wife is> 57. We are both reasonably healthy. :And so'help me, I'll not let them, wring-me out until I'm 65; then give, me a" wa,tch and the air. 1 . ; . That is., his conviction. And'here is how he wi carry, it'out: ' .. ''''»'•' _ "On.my 60th birthday," he "says,, 'i am going t quit the company I have served for ,26 years. At tha time I can draw a bobtailed pension of $104'a merit for life. With .this $104 and ' ' '"" ' some sharp ^ f'guring my wife and I-,can have financial security Mr,.-:and Mrs.' Williamson own a good 'house,-, and think they can net ?16,00fl' if' they sell it. They have $7,200 in a savings account. Mr. Williamson, has $10,000 in life insurance that he can convert ,to paid-up insurance at age 60, with a cash value of about $4,-000 "WE ARE GOING to sell our house," .Mr. Williamson -says, "and buy a-$4,000 used • trailer, either in the 'Arizona-California area or in Florida. This will leave iis.S12.000 out of the house money. "We'll spend -this $12,000, in equal installments, over the five years until my Social Security starts. This .will average out to about $2,400 a year or $200 a and. savings,"' say§ Mr,. William son. "The $10,000 insurance, plus ti $7,200. savings, and accumulate interest, plus the interest acc'um lated on the house money, -shou give my widow at least $19,00 If she spent this at:the rate $100 a month—which is about a she'd need in addition to her $ Social Security and the trailer the S1S.OOO should -carry, her ft about 16 years. And this' doesn count-the interest, she would'1> getting each yefer on the unusf portion of the $19,000 .i. . "IF I DIED" at 66,' my wi would be 64. If she can have th kind of security for 16 years, o until age 80, we are .both willin to -gamble on it. After all, 'this more than 20 years down the roa month. The $200 added to my bob- from now.' Surely Social Securil tailed pension will give, us $304 a! and medical care for the aged wi month. In a t>aid-im trailpr in a be more crpnprnm: " month. In a paid-up trailer in a warm" climate we'll have security ..." Mr. Williamson plans to put the $12,000 in an insured savings am loan, association where he can gel 4 l /2 per- cent interest. He'll take out $1,200 every six months anc i leave the rest to draw interest. He'll let the interest accumulate and add it to his $7.200 savings. "WHEN I EEACH 65," Mr. Williamson continues, "the house money will be gone; but Social Security of maybe $100 .for me and maybe $30-for my wife will begin. '(Five years of idleness can cut down his benefits.) My pension will still be paying, so w'e'll have $234 a month." If Mr. Williamson should die at, say age 66, his wife will be left with only-her Social Security of $7? or so a month '(three- fourths of her husband's benefit). His pension won't cany over to his wife. "We've decided to handle that situation with the insurance be more generous . . . Mr./.Williamson concedes that h has not covered all bases in h plan to retire at 60. The seconu hand .trailer Will wear out afte a while, even if he parks it to keeps. There will constantly b the peril of disastrous medica bills for one or the other. "We have some fat in our bin get," Mr. Williamson explains "Also, there's a good chance tha the government .in a couple o years will have disaster medica insurance for older folks. An finally, you've got to have a littl courage in these matters . . '. Mr. Williamson, by retiring a 60, _ will be in search of somethin sweeter than a business career which he admits is a pretty goo< one . . .a position in the auditin c department 'of a large, good com pany. He'll kick a few tin cans smile at some pretty girls, walk £ few curbstones. "At 60," he says "I'll still be young enough tt care." He'll also explore the pos Everyone's talking about the NEW ACRILAN CARPET FROM THE LOOMS OF MOHAWK MOW! SEE FOR YOURSELF! LOOKS BETTER...
