SAVING FOR THE FUTURE
Social Security isn’t necessarily as secure as you need it to be. That’s why saving for retirement should be one of your biggest financial priorities.
Make sure that your non-working years will be enjoyed without the threat of debt hanging over your head. People can make very common mistakes and accidentally sabotage their savings.
One such mistake? Not taking full advantage of an employer match. If your workplace offers an employer match, that means the company will contribute to your retirement fund based on your contributions. In other words, it’s free money. Be sure to double-check, then triple-check that you’re claiming all the money you’re eligible for.
