Online Trading Academy Helps Near-Retirees Fill Gap Between Pensions and Retirement

The Global Investing and Trading Education Company ( Educates Individuals on How to Manage their Portfolio for a Rewarding Retirement

Irvine, CA, July 18, 2012 - Online Trading Academy strives to help employees who may be affected by the proposed pension reforms to take action and handle their finances through education and understanding so they can secure a stable and fruitful retirement.

According to a recent Reuter’s article and Pew study, the state workers’ pension gap was at $757 billion in 2010. States such as Pennsylvania admitted to neglecting to pay the full amount that was recommended to put into its retirement system between 2005 and 2010. Pennsylvania itself was at a $25 billion gap by 2010. Many states are trying to act fast in devising their reform plans on time for the November ballot. In California, Governor Jerry Brown has three important features to his 12-point pension reform plan are as follows: require all public employees to pay half the cost of their retirement plans; require future employees to share the risks associated with their plans with tax payers; and tying state and local retirement ages to federal retirement ages. Also in California, the Senate passed the California Secure Choice Retirement Savings Trust Act for the private-sector, which would require businesses with more than five employees to enroll in a new personal pension defined benefit retirement plan unless they already have one in place. Connecticut is considering a similar state-administered retirement plan for small businesses.

“Now is a better time than ever for employees to build, manage and grow their nest egg,” said Eyal Shahar, Founder and President of Online Trading Academy. “It is time for employees to take action and no longer rely on their employers to handle their retirement savings.”
