The number one rule is start to plan and invest for retirement early in your life and be consistent. The power of compounding is lost on many people. Maxing out contributions when possible, eliminating debt, avoiding risks with your nest egg, planning for multiple streams of income once retired (social security, pensions, dividends, part time work, etc.) and making catch up contributions once you reach 50 should all be part of everyone's plan.. I recently found the site Retirement And Good Living which provides information on all these issues as well as finances, health, retirement locations, part time work and also has a great blog of guest posts about a variety of retirement topics.
Good article. I recently came across a retirement site at retirementandgoodliving that provides information on social security, medicare, the ACA, retirement savings, health, retirement locations, traveling and more. Worth checking out.
