Successful Savings Strategies
You may be juggling the needs of a growing family and aging parents, but don't take a break from retirement savings.
You can contribute up to $18,000 to a 401(k) or similar workplace-based retirement plan this year or $5,500 to an IRA. Roll over retirement savings from previous jobs into an IRA.
Adjust your asset allocation to 80% stocks and 20% bonds.
Your kids can get grants or loans for college, but there's no financial aid for your retirement. Don't put your kids' college costs ahead of retirement.
