Planning for retirement can seem overwhelming since you have to determine how much money will end up serving you and your needs in your golden years. Those who are successful in their saving all share the same secrets.
Starting the saving early is one of the biggest secrets. The sooner you start, the less you have to actually save thanks to compound interest.
Using every paycheck to save can help, especially if you use automatic investing, help increase retirement account balances. And if your employer offers investment matching, then take advantage of it for an easy way to boost that retirement account balance.
As income rises, so should your retirement saving contributions.
As you invest, be sure to take full advantage of any tax breaks for your contributions. Choosing tax-free growth accounts is another way to use tax laws to your advantage.
Learn about the fees associated with your retirement accounts and find ways to avoid them, if possible.
