The sooner you start saving for retirement the better. By putting money away regularly, right from the start of your working life, you have longer to build up a pot of funds which will last you in your old age, giving you financial freedom.
But even if you are later on in years, it still isn’t too late to start a retirement savings plan.
How to save for retirement
As with everything in life, when it comes to how to save for retirement there are many options to choose from. For example, you could:
- Put money into ISAs
- Invest in property
- Start, or top-up, a pension
- Consider premium bonds or trusts
- Open savings accounts
- Invest in stocks and shares
Whatever you do, choose options which bring you a return – money stashed under the mattress is never going to grow in value, it will only depreciate.
The most effective retirement savings plan involves taking an overview of where you are now and what you want to achieve with your savings, then coming up with a strategy which suits your circumstances.
