Retirement Savings Tips For 18- To 24-Year-Olds


Though I recently left this age group, I feel that having a solid financial backbone is important for young investors, students and anyone else that intends to retire one day.  I found an article with tips for budgeting, credit cards, insurance information and a whole manner of other subjects.  Many of these tips, if followed, will help you start off on the right foot and maybe avoid the pitfalls many of us are experiencing in a tough economy like the one we are living in today.  I hope this article helps a few people!

Find the article HERE.

  19. I'm 25, I should really start saving to be honest. I've always been a really big "All-in" type of person though, which generally leads to failure of epic proportions.

  22. 10% of a paycheck should be saved.
    Either into a Roth IRA or if your company has it a 401(k) that they match.

  23. It's good to start early, years ago someone told me you need at least a million to retire safely, which is difficult these days I'm sure.
    Good tips man.
    Also, I see you EVERYWHERE hahaha.

  28. yup, it's definitely something everyone should atleast look into.
    i started an IRA when i was 18 and started working, but when i quit work and started going to college after a couple years, i closed the IRA, then needed cash for school, so i used the money that was in it.
    now that i'm done with school, i can't find a job, not even the old job i had before i went to school :\
