Retirement might sound as if it’shundreds of years away, but it’simportant to start saving as soon asyou can – the sooner you start, theless you’ll have to contribute eachmonth to retire in comfort.

It may be tempting to take early retirement at the age of 50 or 55, but the sooner you stop working, the lower your quality of life will be during your retirement years.
