July 2018 – Often it’s the little things in life that can make the biggest difference. Whether its $10 a week, or $500 a month, saving money early in life, doing it consistently, and increasing the amount when you’re able to can help you live the life you want in retirement.  Regularly saving even a little bit more can add up over time. Consider that while an extra 1% is a small percentage of your annual earnings today, after 20 or 30 years it can make a big difference when you retire. That’s because the longer you give your money a chance to grow, the better. And it works no matter how old you are—or how far off retirement is.  And don’t lose out on the opportunity to make the most of your savings by not investing them for the long term growth you’ll need to last you throughout your lifetime.
