I attended a brief seminar last week that featured a former Department of Labor investigator. As current trends in the qualified retirement plan area were discussed, the following statistic came up among pre-retirees: “the largest regret about my retirement is that I didn’t save enough (or at all) during the first five years I worked” – Did you know that by beginning to save when you get your first job, especially during the first 5 years, you can dramatically increase your retirement success rate? Two key factors come into play: 1) your investments have longer to compound and grow, and 2) most who do so develop a positive habit of disciplined saving. If this window has passed by, do you have loved ones you need to encourage to start investing now? And if you are late, why not start now anyway? Call us and we can help.
