But only a few will retire with financial
security. Many will not.
Why? Because only 27% of boomers
have more than $100,000 in retirement savings.
And 45% have saved nothing at all.
If you're counting on social security to
bail you out, think again.
Social security provides enough to live
around the poverty line.
Many predict it won't even be here
when it's your time to retire.
What's more, people are living longer
You may need your retirement savings
to last 30 years, maybe more.
So, what's the solution? It’s pretty
Spend less than you earn.
Set a monthly budget...
...then pay yourself the first 15%
And direct deposit it into your 401k, IRA,
or retirement account.
Then use the web to monitor your
accounts and track your progress.
If you do nothing else than pay
yourself the first 15% of every
paycheck, you'll have a far better
chance to live out your golden years
in financial comfort.
The best time to start saving for your
future is right now.
