HOW SHOULD I INVEST MY PENSION LUMP SUM? – TAX LIENS
I know the mention of the word tax or tax lien or even the word lien for many people brings up a handful of negative thoughts. In this instance, as investors, I’m discussing something very positive.
As a matter of fact, it’s a government-mandated and administered business that was created 200-years ago.
Currently, the tax lien and tax deed business is mandated by the state legislature. However, it’s administered locally by the county government under the watchful eye of the board of supervisors or the county commissioners.

What you plan to do with money is always a big question. But first, what do you need to live comfortably?
Is your pension lump sum a big number, 7 figures or is it a small number under 7 figures?
Expect a lot of advisors, and stock brokers for sure, to recommend growth stocks or maybe bonds. Keep in mind, growth stocks also have risk. However, they might make enough money to make up for inflation.
The value of money will certainly deflate in the future years, and the prices will be rising. Inflation makes seniors on fixed incomes poor. If you don’t have an increase in income each year, you should be concerned.
Will your social security be enough? Will you still be able to make those trips to Belgium, Rome, Brussels and Italy?
Cryptocurrency will be a consideration in the future. Keep in mind, I’m not making recommendations. I’m just relating to all the things that happen when people talk about lump sums of money.

Insurance sales people love annuities and the fixed payments for life. The commissions that insurance agents earn on annuities are significant. In other words, they are high.
There are dozens of ways to make money with your lump sum.
Earlier I mentioned brokers. They will be selling growth, and they’ll be selling the future. Insurance people are selling security. Local real estate people will be selling rental homes. Certainly, you have enough choices.
HOW SHOULD I INVEST MY PENSION LUMP SUM? – RISK AND REWARD
Are you willing to learn new things? Are you willing to measure risk and reward? Or do you prefer security?

Have you allocated some of the lump sum for secure investments and others as inflation hedges?

Getting back to your family, they are going to encourage you to put the money in the bank and earn a solid 1%. However, inflation at this point in time is at 6%.

HOW SHOULD I INVEST MY PENSION LUMP SUM? – ALTERNATIVE REAL ESTATE
Today I’m discussing the question, “How should I invest my pension lump sum?”
If you’re wondering, “What should I do with my pension lump sum?” let me give you a different idea that is safe and secure.
About half of the states in the United States will auction tax lien certificates. Millions of certificates are auctioned each year.
HOW SHOULD I INVEST MY PENSION LUMP SUM? – TAX LIEN CERTIFICATES
Tax lien certificates are safe and secure investments issued by local county governments on local properties after the owner failed to pay property taxes.
The owner is not necessarily a deadbeat. Possibly they lost their job, maybe they had an illness or had a child that needed surgery or extended medical care.
The local county takes action to collect taxes. They sell tax lien certificates to outsiders and individuals with lump sum pensions.
HOW SHOULD I INVEST MY PENSION LUMP SUM? – AN INVESTMENT SECURED BY REAL ESTATE
Your money is secured by the real estate. According to most county treasurers who operate the auctions, 95% of tax liens will pay the certificate owner the high interest rate in 24 months or less.
So, what’s in it for you? Two possibilities.
1. You earn a high interest rate, or
2. If the property owner doesn’t pay, you receive the deed to the property with no mortgage.
So if you’ve been wondering what to do with a pension lump sum, tax lien certificates are an investment to seriously consider.
We hope you enjoyed Ted’s lesson, “How Should I Invest My Pension Lump Sum?”
When you’re planning for retirement, there are a lot of investment options to choose from, each with varying degrees of risk.
Some of the “safer” choices, like bank CDs, aren’t really that safe in the long run if they can’t hedge against inflation.
There is a little-known, high-yielding investment that’s considered safe and secure because it’s secured by real estate: tax lien certificates.
Tax lien certificates have been sold at county auctions in the USA for 200 years. They pay interest rates of 16%, 18%, 24%, and even as high as 36%.
If you don’t get paid, you get the property, and you get it without a mortgage.
It’s a lucrative passive investment and an excellent choice for the savvy investor!
