It will be here sooner than you think. Retirement—the day you’ve looked forward to since your first boss yelled at you or your first extended overtime stint—can produce a host of emotions, ranging from boundless joy to abject fear. It’s not easy to take a long, hard look at your finances or to contemplate your mortality, but doing so is the only way to protect yourself from life’s uncertainties when you retire.
The earlier in your career you start preparing for retirement, you’ll be better financially upon retirement. With more than half of working population in the US having no retirement saving, it’s scary to think about their future. Their only alternative is to continue working till they drop. Unless you want to be in the same boat, start preparing for your retirement today, start saving for retirement today.
