A Perfect Time to Start

The sooner you begin adding more to your retirement plan, the more time your extra contribution will have to grow and compound. Now is a perfect time to start.

If you knew you were going to receive a gift of $50,000, would you prefer to get your hands on that money today or wait a year to receive it? Most likely, your answer would be: "Now, please." You know instinctively that the sooner you receive the money, the sooner you can benefit from it.

It works much the same way with saving for retirement. The sooner you begin adding more to your retirement plan, the more time your extra contribution will have to grow and compound. Compounding is basically money, making money. Time is a big part of the magic of compounding. The longer your money is invested, the more you potentially benefit from compounding.
