When you're leaving high school or entering college, you gain a lot of responsibility. Do yourself a favor and be smart with your money. Being responsible about your budget and spending habits will pay off in the long run.
When you're in your 20s and 30s, you have a lot of big financial decisions on your plate. Perhaps you're finishing college and getting ready for that first "real" job. You're probably moving and having to decide how much to spend on rent or even considering buying your first home. Maybe a marriage or a first child is on the horizon. Remember to live below your means — spend less than can. And, although it seems a long way off, if you have a full-time job, you should be saving for retirement.
Set up an appointment with us to go over your finances and see how your credit union can help you.
The average person should start saving for retirement between the ages of 18 and 21, when basic education is complete and you have full-time income. The earlier you start saving for retirement, the less you'll have to sacrifice during your working years and the more your nest egg will grow.
That's right — save LESS each year AND end up with MORE when you retire.
That's the beauty of starting early.
