One of the biggest money mistakes people make now is failure to set aside money for retirement funding. This is especially true of those in my generation (X or Y or something like that). It seems as though retirement is a long way away. Unfortunately, in my circumstance, retirement is less stable than ever before. Gone are the pensions. Social Security is no longer a sure bet. This means that most of us have to rely on ourselves to provide for retirement. And this means retirement planning.
If you haven’t made retirement planning a priority, make it one now. There are many options available from IRAs to 401(k)s to special plans for the self-employed. Check with a financial planner, or even do your own research, and find a way determine what you need to do now so that you are secure in your future.
