Funny Retirement Plan Cartoon Offers Smart Advice

Many years ago a retirement plan cartoon appeared which made all of us at PCH headquarters laugh out loud.  It showed a nervous job applicant sitting before an executive-type interviewer holding a big colorful envelope and saying, “We don’t exactly have a pension plan, but we do encourage our employees to enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.”

It’s a funny cartoon and should not be taken too seriously: No one should pin his or her hopes of a comfortable retirement exclusively on the chance of winning our $1 Million Plus $5000 A Week For Life Mega Prize.  Saving, budgeting, investing, reading, and good common sense all have a place in the planning process for long-term financial security.

On the other hand, I would agree with part of that exec’s advice: Enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes!  You have nothing to lose – and a possible lifetime of financial security to gain.

You may be thinking “I’m many years away from retirement, so I don’t have to think about that yet.”  Well, the experts would not agree.  In recent weeks writers at The New York Times and guests on NBC’s Today Show offered the same counsel:  Whether you are 21, 41 or 61, it’s never too early to start planning your “Golden Years.”

And just think how “golden” things would be if you win a $1 Million Plus $5000 A Week For Life Mega Prize from Publishers Clearing House!  There would be plenty of money to pay off all your bills, to share with the people you love, to buy a new home or a new car (or two), or to travel to places you’ve always wanted to go.

So take my advice – and the cartoon’s: Enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes!

Just click here on this link to where you will find a variety of ways to Play and Win – like PCH Lotto, PCH Search & Win, PCH Games, and more.  And don’t forget: You can enter the sweepstakes at every day for more chances to win.

Maybe your door will be the next one that the PCH Prize Patrol knocks on to announce: “You are a winner in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes!”  That would make a very lucrative retirement plan for your golden years!

Wishing you the best of luck.

    I did see a funny show on T.V. that was something like “Life of the Rich and Famous”. It showed a really extravagantly dolled up black lady driving an expensive sedan with a friend whooping it up down a Hollywood Boulevardish area. The reporter asked “How Did You Get So Rich?”. She Replied: “Honey, The Lottery of Course!”. She won something like 100 and something million dollars. That was unexpected and surprisingly surprising and funny!:) It can happen…
