start early for retirement planning

Start Early & Pay Yourself First

No matter how old you are, you know saving money takes determination and discipline. Retirement may feel like a long time away, and your daily living expenses always seem to take priority. It takes planning and a certain amount of sacrifice to save, so paying yourself first is a good rule of thumb. Sometimes, the earlier you start, the smaller the amount you might need to set aside each month. But remember it's never too late to start saving either. 

Let's consider an example1 to illustrate how saving early can help you in the long run. To save $100,000 in 25 years (assuming an 8 percent tax-deferred return), you'll need to save $109.31 each month if you start now. If you wait five years, you'll need $174.62 each month. If you wait 10 years, you'll need to save $294.31 each month — that's $185 more per month to accumulate $100,000. Finding a small amount to carve out of your budget now may be much easier than finding almost double that amount 10 years from now. That's why time can be your best friend in building a secure retirement.
