Question:Is it ever too late to start planning for retirement?

I'm feeling like I'm running out of time or that if I start saving now it's not going to be nearly enough.

Answer:

It's never too late! Start by seeing if your company has a matching 401k. That is free money! If you are over 50 you can even contribute more for retirement than the under 50 crowd. If you don't have a matching 401k you may want to look into a Roth IRA. Don't wait any longer!
