At a young age it may not seem like saving for retirement is of little importance but starting early
will result in a happy and filled retirement. There are many mistakes that people make that ruin their chances for retirement.
Here are a few mistakes that people make when it comes to preparing for retirement:
-People skip on saving for retirement entirely, and this may be due to many reasons. For instance, not enough money to save, being to young to start saving for retirement, or even relying on social security and pensions. It doesn’t matter how old you are, saving for retirement should be on your mind.
-Using retirement funds to pay for vacation or debt expenses. This can hurt you more in the long run due to penalties.
-Thinking that you will spend less when you retire, when that isn’t entirely true. Expenses may come up as they did before you retired. Spending doesn’t just go away when you retire. If you decide to become frugal when you retire, it’s best to just decide to start now.
-Not preparing for retirement at all because you think you aren’t gonna retire at all. Life happens and you may feel like you love your job and you’ll love it forever, but things change and you never know what will happen in the future that may prevent you from working or some major life event changes your path.
