Saving for retirement

How much should you save for retirement?

Knowing how much retirement savings you will need starts with knowing how much you spend to support your lifestyle today. Some expenses may go away by the time you retire, like the cost of raising kids. Others are likely to increase, like the cost of health care. Maximizing your retirement savings now may give you the best chance of living the retirement lifestyle you envision.
