How I’d double my State Pension with £25 a week

The full new State Pension is £175.20 per week, or £9,110.40 a year. However, the actual amount a pensioner receives will vary from person to person, based on different factors. Many pensioners will not receive the full amount, and even if they do, it’s unlikely to be enough to cover living expenses. Surveys suggest the average pensioner needs at least £20,000 a year to cover all living expenses and little luxuries. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…With that in mind, I’ve been building my own private pension to complement the State Pension in later life. I’ve started with an investment of just £25 a week. Private pension The best method to beat the State Pension, in my opinion, is via a Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP). There are two key advantages to doing this. Firstly, any money contributed to this pension attracts tax relief at your marginal tax rate. That’s around 20% for basic rate taxpayers. Secondly, any income or capital gains earned on money held with inside one of these pension wrappers doesn’t attract any further tax. These two benefits will help me build my pension pot at a much faster rate than would otherwise be possible.For example, my initial investment of £25 a week becomes £31.25 after basic rate tax relief of 20%. That’s without including any income tax or capital gains benefits. Double the State PensionMost online stockbrokers now offer a regular investment programme. This allows investors to set up a monthly deposit, and the platform takes care of the rest, investing the money in an investment fund of your choice. I’m making full use of this facility. I have automated deposits of £25 a week set up from my bank account. After tax relief, this works out at roughly £135.42 a month. This is then invested into a low-cost index tracker fund regularly by my online broker. I’ve chosen a low-cost FTSE All-Share tracker fund to start, as I believe this gives me the most bang for my buck. In the future, I plan to add some international stock indexes to increase diversification. However, I believe the FTSE All-Share is a good place to start. Over the past 100 years, UK stocks have produced an average annual return for investors of around 7%. Assuming this return continues for the next few decades, I reckon I can build a pension pot worth around £360k with an investment of £25 a week. This pension pot could provide an income of £14,800 a year in retirement, according to my figures, comfortably outpacing my State Pension income. Just the startI plan to increase my pension contributions over the long term, so £25 a month is just the start. By increasing contributions by just 10% a year, I think it could be possible to build a million-pound pension within four decades. Put simply, it’s relatively straightforward to beat the State Pension by making the most of a savings and investment plan.  There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it!

They had real gas in Jake Randall and top try-scorer Josh Adams, and a back row of Will Boyde, No 8 Bennett and Torin Myhill that dented the firmest of defences.Wales U18 fly-half and top point-scorer Jack Maynard was astute and reliable, and hooker Tom Ball a livewire in the loose. Bennett, Randall and Ball all played a number of games in the Principality Premiership for Carmarthen Quins, Llandovery and Llanelli respectively.The highlights were wins over Coleg Gwent and Llandovery College, and the triumph at Rosslyn Park, where they became only the fifth Welsh side to win the Open in 73 years, knocking out holders Filton College, Millfield and Whitgift along the way.

This new apartment building in a Sydney southern beachside suburb stands apart from its neighbours, using sleek urban sculptural forms and urban materials to carve out a different, more urban, way of living by the sea.Save this picture!Ground PlanTraditionally, apartments on Australia’s spectacular eastern coastline were not designed for year-round living. They grew out of a ‘summer holiday’ short-term occupancy tradition, characterised by inexpensive construction, cheap and cheerful materials, ill-considered layouts and poor thermal control.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanAs a result, older coastal apartments can be uncomfortable to live in year-round, and are ill equipped to deal with the harsh conditions that come with close proximity to the sea: high summer heat, fierce on-shore winds at the end of the day, sea spray, salt laden corrosive air, and noisy neighbours. Much energy is wasted heating and cooling internal spaces to deal with summer heat and winter chills.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanWith this in mind Fox Johnston conceived this newly completed 45-apartment complex, SOLIS at Little Bay to Sydney’s south, as a new kind of seaside apartment living: more a sophisticated, high quality urban complex -by- the-sea, albeit one with beach-living characteristics and a relaxed seaside vibe, than a holiday flat.They also wanted to design a building that had minimal impact on the fragile coastal environment in which it sits, and one that conserves and efficiently uses both energy and rainwater.Save this picture!DiagramPart of the wider Little Bay community, SOLIS sits on a remarkable site on 13.6 hectares of rare oceanfront land – with exposure to a naturally spectacular and at times, unforgiving rugged coastline.“Australian coastal environments like this are particularly harsh: too much wind, sun and salt. At certain times of the day, it can feel like you are on the prow of a ship, being buffeted by 100km per hour winds,” says Fox Johnston Director Conrad Johnston. “Older apartments are always too hot in summer and too cold in winter.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Brett Boardman“We have designed the building with this front of mind. At the same time, it is obviously important to maintain maximum access to sunlight, views and airflow, but to be able to manage these throughout the day more effectively as conditions change.”Approaching from the north, the visitor first sees a distinctive, curved steel-clad five storey form, as the building turns its back to the road in favour of the spectacular coastal views. Four floors of apartments, each with its own scissor-shaped north facing balcony and strong horizontal lines, are bookended by another strong sculptural form at the eastern end.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanThe building comprises three parts: the central volume houses one bedroom and study apartments, with eastern and western building volumes housing mainly two bedroom apartments. Each apartment in the central section runs the full width of the building and is accessed via walkways at the rear of the building, again with strong horizontal lines defined by steel screens.SOLIS’s distinctive scissor shaped balconies ensure full northerly orientation and maximum sunshine for every apartment – creating a dynamic dialogue with its new neighbours to the north and east as well as the central Urban Lounge.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanEach apartment has been sensitively designed to give complete cross ventilation – with the ability to open up or close down spaces as desired, during the day and at various times during the year.Natural sunlight filters through bedroom and living spaces throughout the day with adjustable sun shading screens controlling the preferred environment. These living and bedroom spaces will benefit from opening onto large private terraces, offering a seamless connection between outside and in.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanGiven the building’s proximity to the sea, Fox Johnston has used elegant, durable, external cladding and wall finishes with inbuilt longevity – face brick, metal cladding, concrete and steel. Internal spaces are finely crafted and use natural Australian, spotted gum timber floors and joinery, and stone kitchens.Environmental sustainability and energy conservation are major objectives for the Little Bay precinct as a whole, and for this building in particular. “A key driver for the design was our desire to reduce environmental impact through energy and water reduction, minimising waste, stormwater and rainwater management and promoting biodiversity,” says Conrad Johnston. Close proximity to the ocean and sensitive marine environments has motivated outstanding water use and treatment initiatives. An integrated water cycle ensures wastewater is recycled for reuse in dwellings as well as the near by public parks and golf course. All stormwater and rainwater is treated through a series of swales and bio-filtration ponds, improving water quality before discharging.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanThe orientation and linear proportions of the design allow passive heating and cooling to be maximised. Direct solar access is achieved all year round in 100% of apartments. Each and every apartment also boasts duel aspect and a balcony allowing natural ventilation.Project gallerySee allShow lessFormer Fuji Ice Plant / O.F.D.A.Selected ProjectsSpring Valley Brewery Tokyo / General DesignSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Little Bay NSW 2036, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Known for daring and unconventional designs such as Cadet Chapel at the United States Air Force Academy, architect and former SOM design partner Walter Netsch (1920 – 2008) employed the same ingenuity for the design of his own home as he did in his major projects. His Chicago residence demonstrates the design philosophy he called “field theory,” based on complex geometries that establish intricate relationships between form and function. Originally completed in 1974, the home appears as a deceptively simple box from the outside, but contains a rich variety of spaces within, with multiple interior levels connected by open-riser stairs. After Netsch’s wife passed away in 2013, SOM worked with the new owners to maintain the spirit of the house by sensitively adapting and renewing select elements of the structure.Save this picture!© Dave Burk | SOMSave this picture!3rd floor planSave this picture!© Dave Burk | SOMThe Netsch residence is situated inconspicuously in Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood, where its brick facade gives little indication of the complexity behind it. Inside, multistory ceiling heights create the illusion of a much larger house. Skylights that at first seem strangely placed are soon revealed as highly calculated decisions, framing views and illuminating specific spaces at certain times of the day and year. Netsch’s application of field theory creates expansive sightlines between rooms; indeed, the only spaces in the entire house with doors are the bathrooms.Save this picture!© Dave Burk | SOMSave this picture!© Dave Burk | SOMThe renovation added new appliances and cabinetry to a well-worn kitchen. A continuous 40-foot walnut counter and shelf were installed to recall the original linear service bar. The half bath was renewed with new counters, lighting, and a cleverly concealed water closet. New tile work and counters refresh the existing master bathroom configuration. To reconcile the open concept with the need for privacy, concealed sliding doors were designed and installed at the bath and master bedroom area.Save this picture!© Dave Burk | SOMThe interiors were once covered wall-to-wall with works from Netsch’s art collection, which included prominent American modernists such as Robert Motherwell, Roy Lichtenstein, and Robert Indiana. Now, the wall above the sofa provides a backdrop for a newly commissioned site-specific piece: a digital projection by Chicago-based artist duo Luftwerk.Save this picture!© Dave Burk | SOMProject gallerySee allShow lessPunta Majahua / Zozaya ArquitectosSelected ProjectsGonçalo Cristovão’s Apartment / MerooficinaSelected Projects Share “COPY” “COPY” Houses 2019 Architects: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img Projects Year:  CopyAbout this officeSkidmore, Owings & MerrillOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationChicagoOn InstagramOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on February 17, 2021Cite: “Netsch Residence Renovation / Skidmore, Owings & Merrill” 17 Feb 2021.

The data gathered is based on mortgage performance health, stages of delinquency as well as transition rates from one stage of delinquency to the next. In its previous report, released on December 2018, CoreLogic revealed an upward spike in serious delinquency rates in disaster-affected areas. Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist at CoreLogic pointed out to a sharp rise in the 30- or 60-day delinquency rate by 19 percent in the Redding metro area between August to September—recording the largest monthly rise in the metric since 2006, the period that marked the beginning of foreclosure crisis. With the exception of disaster-affected areas, the report found that U.S. serious delinquency and foreclosure rates were the lowest for September in 12 years. It also reflected a steady drop in the past due rate on an annual basis, for the past nine months consecutively. Nationally, 4.4 percent of mortgages were in some stage of delinquency, recording a decline in the overall delinquency rate at 0.6 percentage, compared to 5 percent last year.“Outside of the areas affected by natural disasters, serious delinquency, and foreclosure rates have declined steadily across the nation as the labor market has improved and home prices have risen,” said Frank Martell, President, and CEO of CoreLogic.CoreLogic will release its latest Loan Insights Report on Tuesday, 9 a.m. ESTHere’s what else is coming in The Week Ahead:AEI National Housing Market Indicators, Monday, 11 a.m. ESTMBA Apps, Wednesday, 9 a.m. ESTFOMC Minutes, Wednesday, 2 p.m. ESTFed Balance Sheet, Thursday, 4:30 p.m. ESTFreddie Mac Primary Mortgage Market Index, Thursday, 9 a.m. EST The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago  Print This Post The Week Ahead: A Closer Look at Mortgage Performance Share Save Subscribelast_img read more
