Save Early and Save Often, No Matter How Much You Earn

Save Early and Save Often, No Matter How Much You Earn


Don’t wait to plan for your ‘someday’

Working hard, paying bills, and putting money aside for your needs and wants in the “now” are so often automatic in our day-to-day lives – so why aren’t we thinking about or planning for the future?

Try one – or more! – of these three ways to take advantage of retirement savings opportunities right now to build yourself a more secure future

  1. Open up a my Social Security account. This free account can help you determine what your benefits will be and when will be best for you to start receiving them
  2. Save early and save often, no matter how much you earn. Inside the workplace, outside the workplace, through myRA, or elsewhere – take advantage of all retirement savings opportunities available to you!
  3. Take the opportunity to repledge with America Saves and make the commitment to save for your retirement goal.

It’s clear that anyone not using the present to plan for retirement will likely be setting themselves up for a less than golden future. But it’s never too early or too late to save for retirement.
