The answer is simple: as soon as you can. Ideally, you'd start saving in your 20s, when you first leave school and begin earning paychecks. That's because the sooner you begin saving, the more your money has the potential to grow. Any gains during the year have the potential to generate their own gains the next year - a powerful wealth-building concept known as compounding.

A rule of thumb is to save 10% - 15% of your income; however, it’s a good idea to establish a savings target - one that tells you roughly how much you should set aside over time towards meeting your goals. When determining how much you will need in retirement, be honest about how you want to live in retirement and how much it will cost.


Your employer-sponsored retirement savings plan is a great place to save for your retirement. Knowing the benefits and basics of your retirement plan can start you on a path to a confident future. Take advantage of the resources available online to jump start your savings!
