Retirement Planning For Dummies Cheat Sheet

No two retirement plans are completely alike. You might have heard that you'll have a comfortable retirement if you save a certain amount of money by a certain age. “Just save a million bucks and you’re good,” such advice goes. But how long a million dollars will last in retirement is up to you, which you can figure out pretty easily. Others say all you need to do is max out your 401(k). And for most people, that’s good advice. But if your goal is to retire really early, you’ll need to get more aggressive in saving money. Perhaps you're starting to fear retirement planning because you’re not doing something that the experts say you must do to retire. Don’t let the endless retirement advice you read and hear paralyze you. You can start a basic retirement plan in 15 minutes.
