The Courier recently interviewed me for an article on young adults in there 20s and 30s investing for retirement. Sara Arthurs did a nice job writing this article and accurately quoted what I had to say. Here are the key takeaways:

  1. Start investing now!
  2. Newlyweds should make saving for retirement a priority.
  3. Saving for your retirement is your responsibility, not your employer’s.
  4. Don’t depend on Social Security for your retirement.
  5. Invest in the stock market.
  6. Get help from an investment professional.
  7. Take full advantage of matching contributions your employer might offer to your company’s retirement plan.
  8. If you are eligible, invest in a Roth IRA
  9. Be patient with your investments.
  10. Aim to be debt-free in retirement.
