11 numbers that will terrify you into saving for retirement

  11 numbers that will terrify you into saving for retirement It can be tough to save for retirement when it is still decades away. It’s apparently even tough for older workers who are on the verge of retirement. Living expenses can eat up paychecks, and saving takes a back burner to spending. But it leads to the quintessential fear of what having no money in our older years looks like: the elderly parent who must move in with an adult child, having to chose between food and prescription drugs because only one can be afforded.

Yes , saving double your salary by the time you ' re 35 will help you achieve a stress-free retirement. Of course, it's not possible for many people. (Most of my life having twice my *weekly* income was a huge buffer).

An article says you should have twice your salary saved by the time you ' re 35 — and people are enraged. The earlier you start saving the less you'll have to save over time ," Lane said.

By 35, you should have an entire kitchen cabinet dedicated to plastic bags, insist on making plans with friends (without ever actually hanging out with them) and know how to spell bananas. That’s the gospel on what to achieve by 35, according to Twitter.

You also should have watched twice as many Netflix  series as you’ve finished, have at least three library books that are 30 years overdue, and have eaten a kale salad in public while wearing sunglasses, others added. Perhaps you should have also married a British prince.

You may have recently seen the recommendation from retirement experts that you should save two times (2X) your annual salary by age 35 But if you think of saving as a skill you learn, it’s easier to decide for yourself that you ’ re going to learn to do it, even when it’s hard — and to ask for help.

[2] Twitter Moments – Wait, you ' re supposed to have saved how much by 35 ? [3] Huffington Post – Twitter Users Roast Experts Who Say ‘You Should Have Twice Your Salary Saved ’ By 35 .

These suggestions are part of the viral “By 35” meme that started a week ago in response to a MarketWatch article about saving for retirement in your 30s. The article cited a Fidelity Investments study that suggests having twice your salary saved for by 35. Many critics said the estimate was unrealistic, and so the social media platform was abuzz with other “unrealistic” (but mostly humorous) suggestions for what 35 year olds should do.

Jokes aside, saving and investing is incredibly important. Without a plan in place, giving up work itself can be unrealistic. Social Security and other benefit programs won’t be enough to rely on, and without solid income in your 60s, people may be forced to work.

Start planning for your starter home

Some people prefer to rent, while others believe that rent is dead money. For the latter group, when is the best time to buy? There is no magic age, of course, but here’s some guidance first house purchases and age. Forty years ago, the median age of first-time buyers was 29 to 30 years, according to real-estate company Zillow. Today, the median age for buying a home is 33, while more than half (56%) are aged 18 to 34. Either way, most bought before 35.

College graduates with a bachelor’s degree earn an average of $61,000 per year over their career, but those with graduate degrees earn $17,000 more or $78,000 per year on average over the same period, according to “The Economic Value of College Majors,” a report by Georgetown University.

Set up automatic payments directly from your paycheck so that the money you invest for your future is never touched.

Maple Leafs promote Brandon Pridham to assistant GM

  Maple Leafs promote Brandon Pridham to assistant GM Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas moved quickly to fill a high-profile vacancy, naming Brandon Pridham as assistant GM on Wednesday. Pridham’s title had been assistant to the general manager. He was in charge of ensuring the Leafs followed the rules of the collective bargaining agreement, complied with the salary cap and helped in contract negotiations.The 44-year-old father of two was hired by president Brendan Shanahan four years ago, largely because he was the NHL’s point man on CBA and salary cap issues.

A tweet with a little financial advice went viral this week when it claimed “by 35 , you should have twice your salary saved , according to retirement experts”. Yes sure, experts. The reality is they will likely never own a home, never mind save twice their salary .

Think of those automatic payments as another subscription, like Netflix or Amazon(AMZN) Prime, said Ryan Fuchs, a financial adviser at Ifrah Financial Services in Little Rock, Ark. To make those payments seem even smaller, consider breaking them into weekly deposits, so that $100 a month is only $25 a week.

Live below your means

Assume your salary or compensation is 10% to 15% less than it actually is, said Ajay Kaisth, a financial adviser at KAI Advisors in Princeton Jct., N.J. “Live within that smaller amount,” he said, and if possible invest the difference automatically toward other long-term goals.

Living below your means may mean making trade-offs like driving a less expensive or year-old model car. “There are some sacrifices people have to make,” Weeks said, like choosing to live with roommates or cooking at home instead of ordering take-out meals most of the week.

And if you have children who may go to college . . .

Save for their education, at least if you anticipate helping them with this expense down the road, said Joyce Streithorst, a financial adviser at Frisch Financial Group in Melville, N.Y. That may seem like an entirely separate goal right now, but you don’t want to start saving in your 50s and 60s when you are planning for your golden years.

Understand compound interest

Compound interest — as opposed to simple interest — is interest calculated on both the initial amount of money you have invested, and the interest on the actual interest you have accrued. In its simplest form, it’s interest on interest. The more compounding periods, the higher the interest.

Here’s an example of compound interest, courtesy of Jacqueline Schadeck, a financial adviser at Tailored Wealth Management in Atlanta. If a 30-year-old put $100 a month in an investment account ($1,200 a year) over 40 years, that money could come close to $1.1 million.

Every little bit — even $5 or $20 a week when starting out — will help later on. Also, revisit the math once a year to see how you’re doing. “Don’t wait until you’re in your 40s,” said Randall Bruns, a wealth adviser at HighPoint Planning Partners in Downers Grove, Ill. “You’ll be punished mightily for having a decade less of compounding.”
