That's Payment in Progress, showing in my Payment Report. So if you're expecting a payment and have direct deposit, your money should arrive tomorrow or the next day.
Is that early Nelle? I normally see mine in the first week of each month?
Well is there a PIP in your payment report? Maybe it varies by country. I usually see my payment around this time of month.
I don't normally post it. But I'm a bit exuberant because I've been working on adsense and learning to promote it. So it's a little more this month than usual.
To be honest I didn't even know what one was before you mentioned it! I tend to just notice it appear in my bank account, I like a nice suprise But if WayneT is getting his... then I suspect that I will be getting mine, as he is UK based.
I am getting two months in one go, I placed payment on hold last month, which is great because it gives me enough to pay a large bill and buy a small sofa to match the large one which I bought a couple of months ago.... happy ryan
And my customary 10% into a private pension of course... I have my sights set on a mid-fifties retirement
Umm Yeah. That was our plan too. Then the last few years hit.
If I don't have a little bit of optimism, then I may as well give up! I just think to myself "spread the risk, spread the risk" and hopefully nothing too catostrophic will happen.... the alternative is to spend all of my money on beer like most people my age I guess!
Ryan we were as diversified as we could be. We had multiple streams of income. And it all tanked at once - BIG TIME. And alot of it is gone for good. I don't know anyone (except public employees with guaranteed pensions and healthcare) that have retired on schedule in their fifties, the past 3 years.
But maybe you'll hit the curve just right. And I really can't complain about my life - it's pretty darn good.
I actually saw the effects of that too. Believe it or not I started investing in private pensions at the age of 18, 7 years ago, and saw about 30% of the value of those funds dissapear practically overnight....
....thankfully half of that loss has returned. Your right though, everybody suffered, I guess that I just feel most sorry for those who were 63 or 64 and were planning to work until 65....
But then I can't see any type of investment which didn't suffer. If you kept your assets in cash, inflation has been higher than the interest. If you kept your assets in property, the property prices have fallen significantly. If your assets were shares or funds - like mine - then you would have seen your funds fall with the profits of businesses...
The only good investment that anybody could have made just prior to the crash, other than a few specific corps, is precious metals. Well, gold to be specific.
I guess that I just cross my fingers like everybody else, that the value of those assets and funds will return with the credit markets. The reason that I keep buying is because thats the only way I can capitalise on any future boom.... buy low, sell high, as they say. I won't get much choice as to whether I can sell high, but I can buy low and cross my fingers
And I certainly don't have enough money yet to be buying gold bullion bars I think that we have turned the corner, hopefully it will begin to put people back on track for a retirement at some stage in the near future... it's not only the mature that need that to happen, they are sitting in jobs which the young are desperate to take, things will get better...
Declining markets affect the retired and soon to be retired the most. If you are young and in your prime savings years you should actually welcome them, assuming that they don't also affect your source of income too much.
I am certainly not in my prime saving years at least I hope note. In the UK we have a huge problem with unemployment for 16-24 year olds, although I am now 25 so have left that demographic. I came out of university last July with a first class degree and I am now working for the same money that I was before I went, in 2005, which is not a lot.
It is estimated that 400,000 more people in the UK would have retired since 2008 were it not for the economic problems, that would significantly help reduce the unemployment figure of 2.5m (of which 1m are 16-24). I am of course no longer unemployed, but I would welcome the additional opportunities to progress. It is all rather ironic really, the government makes big noises about us all needing to work longer and the problems with an ageing population.... yet 30% of 2009 graduates in an educational hotbed cannot find a job at all. We had a man with a recently attained PHD come in for an interview for a job as an Admin Assistant the other day....
The sooner that the golden oldies feel that their funds are sufficient enough to take their 25% lump sum and buy an annuity the better in my opinion... I'm sure that the cruise companies are thinking the same too
It's ok to have a little gold-- but I always wonder about all those folks SELLING gold. They have to be making a profit, right? And when things get a little rough (like now) the gold prices are high. Chances are it will go down again-- and the brokers still have their profit.
I froze my payments. My niece is getting married in Mexico early next year and I'm going to try and save that way. If it's not in my bank account, I won't spend it Also, the US dollar is really low ...and the Canadian is high so I actually lose money if I cash in right now
I had never thought about freezing google payments as a savings plan.
They don't pay interest though, so perhaps not the greatest investment! Having said that, neither do the banks at the moment
I was going to leave it in for 6 months, but then had a few nightmares about account suspension/termination.... thats a fair bit of wonga to lose!
I'm thinking 3 cents interest or less temptation.
Yeah, if G decides for some reason, that your "a danger to their publishers" do you lose it all?
I suspect that the answer to that is yes... in fact I'm pretty certain. Which is why I am not too keen on the idea, you just never know, I feel confident that AdSense are fair right now when it comes to account termination... but it only takes a change in personnel for them to become the next eBay...
I'm about $1.46 away from my second payout-- hope I don't have to wait another month.
This is the first time I have reached the payout amount and have enough to get a check the following month. Wow, Now I need to keep that going.
A big congratulations. That is an important Hubber milestone!
It gives one hope, doesn't it? I am very close to my second payout and it took about half the time as the first. I can see things speeding up slowly-- even though I haven't done a lot to maximize benefits.
I have a locked-in pension from another job. The year before last it was down almost $15,000 now it is almost back to what it was. I'm feeling hopeful I wish I had had a job when I was 18 that would have allowed me to put money aside for a pension or gotten a government job. I'd probably have retired by now.
Oops! I stand corrected. Just checked my account and google has not made a deposit yet.
haven't gotten mine yet, either. It is almost always deposited the 25-27th. I would suspect it will be deposited tomorrow or the next day.
Random side note: I love it when Amazon deposits the same day as Google!
When holidays factor in, I've occasionally had it show up earlier - like the 24th, I think? (Not just at Christmas, but I've seen that for a couple of other holidays.)
