What do the giant panda, the polar bear, and a pension plan have in common?
All three are nearly extinct.
Sadly, the dodo bird is extinct.
Extinct animals have organizations raising funds to save them. They have awareness campaigns, buttons, slogans, and adoptions.
But what of the pension plan?
In our grandparents’ day, people worked for the same company for 50 years and retired with a gold watch and a lifetime of pension income to support them during retirement.
Not today. Nope. That breed of retirement income is going extinct.
In 2017, only 16 percent of Fortune 500 employers had pensions, down from 59% in 1998! Pensions are becoming increasingly endangered. Soon you will find pension plans on the extinction list, next to the Dodo bird.
