SUNDAY, DECEMBER 17,1961 THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPQBT PRESS, LOGANSPORT. INDIANA PAGE ELEVEN A Retirement List For Those Past 60 The coming of Christmas and the year's end will bring to you-if you are past 60-some contemplations about retirement. . Following is ; a'list designed to give you a. bit; of nourishment for your thoughts: TAXES-Aft'er .retirement you'll not find income-taxes too painful; if your'only income is Social Security, and a pension:. "But you; had better watch all forms of real estate taxes .if you have' a home in a .community where many children are coming up to school age, or a new community-that needs sidewalks and storm sewers. Bond issues can break your back. Ateo keep an eye cocked toward-any personal property taxes (car, furniture and Mania's rings) or toward intangible taxes (any stocks and'bonds). • . SOCIAL SECURITY—Ignorance on this matter is profound, despite all the efforts of newspapers to explain it. Your Social -Security benefits at 62 or 65,-and your wife's benefits at the same ages, are neat little pieces of information that only a .Social Security office can give you. Your .neighbors can't. Your friends can't. Your company can come close, hut even it can't—only a Social Security office can. You should contact the Social Security office nearest your home (look- in the phone book or ask at the Post Office. Go there and ask questions. Don't be embarrassed. It's YOUR money. ' LIFE INSURANCE-Many people approaching retirement. have life insurance policies that provide what they needed at 35 or 45. You should examine your policies, and if you find 'ttie .provisions of them no longer what you want, you should contact the companies that issued the policies 'and consider conversions that are open to you. Annuities, perhaps. ANNUITIES—What they, pay will differ with your age, how much money you put -into-them; and v^hether or not you" want to -leave GIVE HIM OR:HER a Box of DELICIOUS Stover's Candy Mb.,2.1b., 3-lb., 5-lb. sizes EXCLUSIVE AT TIMBERLAKE'S money .to your heirs. Your life insurance' company has the answers. HUNGER—You have little choice if your retirement income will not be enough to support you. You can appeal to family or friends for help, or you can apply to the Welfare Department of t,he county. You can find it by asking at the Court House or at the City Hall. Bite your lip i fyou must, but if you need help in retirement do not hesilale to go to Public Welfare. Several people have been there before you. INVESTMENTS — All sorts of oddball information floats around retirement circles about how much money you can make on your savings. As a rule, as of right now, a retired person should be satisfied with about 4 per cent interest on savings! This could be in conservative securities recommended by a reputable investment broker. It could be in an insured savings and loan association. Don't reach for more than about 4 per cent unless you are prepared to take the bus to the poprhouse. MOVING—Happiness" is in you. not in where you live. Happiness with a suntan is a bit more pleasant than happiness on ice. JOBS—For people in their. 60's there are virtually no jobs except high-level consultant jobs which executives get... and jobs nobody else will take ,such as watching a crossing, guarding a warehouse or selling notions behind a counter. YOUR CHILDREN —Don't ex- pect a little less than you expect now. Adult children are terribly busy, terribly ambitions and very hungry for money. If-you hold on to your money, refuse to baby-sit, and remain slightly hard to gel, you will fare best... but still not good. Accept this state of affairs and find' interests outside your children. And when you get blue as you will, it may be a reassurance to you to know that nearly all other retired parents do, too For the same reason.
