Retirement Savings

Retirement Perspectives:

The Benefit of Saving Regularly for Retirement

The amount you're able to save has the greatest impact on your retirement success.

Key Points

  • Aim to save at least 15% of your income, including any employer match.
  • Starting early and increasing the amount you are saving over time can make a significant difference.
  • With a systematic savings approach, you won’t second guess your strategy, and you’ll take advantage of dollar cost averaging and compounded growth potential.

Dollar cost averaging cannot assure a profit or protect against loss in a declining market. It involves continuous investing, regardless of fluctuating price levels. Investors should consider their ability to continue investing through periods of fluctuating price levels.
