    This article is reprinted by permission from NerdWallet. The pandemic seems to be driving a surge of early retirements as businesses close or downsize and older people weigh the health risks of continuing to work. The share of unemployed people not looking for work who called themselves “retired” increased to 60% in April from 53% in January, according to a study by three economists. The study was done in the early days of the pandemic, well before tens of thousands of businesses nationwide closed permanently and others began offering early retirement packages to trim their workforces. “It seems to be a persistent and quite widespread phenomenon,” says study co-author Michael Weber, an economics professor at the University of Chicago.

    Matt Albence, the acting director for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, will leave his post by Labor Day, the Washington Examiner has learned. Albence informed senior ICE officials in a private phone call Thursday evening that he plans to retire after serving a year in his position. Albence, a 26-year law enforcement veteran, was appointed as head of ICE instead of being nominated or Senate-confirmed for the job. He assumed the position in June 2019 after working as deputy director of its deportation operations, replacing then-acting ICE Director Mark Morgan after he moved to head Customs and Border Protection. Albence made headlines in 2018 when he told lawmakers at a congressional hearing that family immigration detention centers were “more like summer camp” than jail. Albence is the fourth acting director of ICE since President Trump took office in January 2017. The Trump administration selected Tom Homan as acting director in...

    Jamal Adams trashes Adam Gase, explains what went wrong with the Jets When and How to Harvest the Potatoes Growing in Your Own Backyard I became a millionaire in my 30s and retired early.

So instead of buying a house,...
    Most of us focus on celebrating America’s birthday in July. But former baseball player Bobby Bonilla has his own day to enjoy. July 1 marks his annual payday, when the New York Mets send him a $1.19 million check as part of a deal set up 18 years ago. How’s that work?  In 2000, the Mets cut Bonilla from the team after years of disappointment. Terminating his contract early, the ball club owed him $5.9 million for that season, even though he didn’t play a game. Bonilla and his agent, Dennis Gilbert, opted to hold off on collecting at that time, instead agreeing to spread the payments out over 24 years, starting in 2011, with an 8% annual interest rate. When all is said and done, the total payout will be $29.8 million. Wait, seriously? It may sound like mathematical magic, but Bonilla’s contract with the Mets is a brilliant example of the simple...
    Jackie Cummings Koski has been a member of her local investment club for 11 years and is now on the board of directors — but when she first started out, she had little money to her name and no clear path to financial freedom. Divorce inspired this woman to learn about money and she retired early Koski joined the club so that she could improve her knowledge about investing, but it was also where she was able to openly talk about her divorce and find meaningful ways to provide security — for herself and her young daughter. Each fellow member became something of a mentor to her, and the discussions were inviting. “It was all very uplifting,” she said. Joining the investment club, along with following a budget and spending well under her means, has made the former saleswoman financially independent. In the last 11 years, the single...
