In today’s economic environment the need to care for ones’ own retirement has taken on a much greater importance. With unemployment at a staggering high rate, everyone’s needs to protect their retirement assets are extremely important. The earlier you start the less problematic it is. An example someone age 55 who saves $5,000 in this year and earns 2% will see that $5,000 grow to $6,216.00 at age 65.
Remember if you are 55 or older, you can put aside $5,500.00 per year towards retirement under age 55 the amount remains at $5,000.00.
