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.
