Social Care

Social Care planning. Traditionally, UK Governments collect tax (in different guises), and then spend the monies collected on what they think best.

We have a system of robbing Peter to pay Paul which has existed since the 1950’s, for Pensions as well as long term care.

We need a growing workforce every year to pay NI to fund the ever growing Pension and Social Care requirements.

Unless we take steps to break this cycle, it will never end.

Imagine a Country where we put the Pension and Care portion of your National Insurance (NI) into a personal savings fund. This fund would grow across 50 years, providing a greatly enhanced fund to finance your Pension and Social Care requirements.

The current state pension is a maximum of £179 per week, or £775 per month.

If the same NI payments were invested in your name for your 50 year working life then the same money would pay you around £2,500 per month.

There would of course be some financial pain switching to a sustainable pension and care system that will look after us much better in retirement, but if we don’t reform the system and put a graduated switching process in place we will never reach the point when the system looks after us adequately.
