How Retirees are affected by Technological AdvancementWritten by Hillary Keatley
Retirement and how retirees are affected by the technological advancement of the world.
This week the topic of discussion is retirement and how retirees are affected by the technological advancement of the world. Understanding is key! Don’t let fear rob you of the chance to learn. The more you understand, the more in control you will be therefore, learn as much as you can about as much as you can regarding retirement.
As the world moves more and more in the technological field and ‘the internet of things’ becomes more of a reality, we often forget that there are many people, especially in the developing world, who have never used a computer, never accessed the internet and even the thought of using a computer fills them with fear and trepidation. What about the marginalized who cannot afford more than a second-hand cell phone; how can they manage their affairs when they are used to using the post office?
More and more organizations no longer communicate by post due to a dysfunctional postal service. Fraud and theft are so rife that companies use email to distribute financial statements and medical aid information.
