NFL Announces Distribution of $620 Million Legacy Fund Benefit for Pre-'93 Retired Players
The NFL and NFL Players Association have reached agreement on how to distribute to retired players the $620 million "Legacy Fund" that was established as part of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
"Nothing the league can do can ever fully express our appreciation to the players who helped build our league," said Commissioner ROGER GOODELL. "However, the Legacy Fund is a significant step, especially as the benefits apply to the older players."
Below are two examples of how the Legacy Fund benefit will greatly increase monthly pension payments to many retired players:
• There is a 10-year veteran player who retired in the 1960s who has been receiving a $200 monthly pension. The Legacy Fund benefit will increase his monthly check to $1,840.
• Another 10-year veteran who retired in the 1970s will see his monthly check increase from $165 to $1,810.

Social media has turned the world of recruiting and career placement on its head. LinkedIn profiles are the new resumes; social networks are the new databases. Hiring and firing decisions are frequently made on the basis of Facebook photos; job openings are posted and spread through personal networks on Twitter; references and recommendations are made through LinkedIn.
Taken together, these can provide a much richer portrait of who you are and your potential value to an organization. Eighty percent of jobs are never advertised, but are filled through networking – and as social media booms, an increasing number of those are found through social media websites.
