Retirement Planning in High School ? Its never to early

Recommended Posts

Now is a good time to talk with rs about long-term savings using a Roth I.R.A. because they may have earned money from summer jobs, said Patricia A. Seaman, a spokeswoman for the National Endowment for Financial Education, a nonprofit organization that promotes financial literacy.

Maybe because they know student loans are coming their way. Its a huge issue.Many kids start their careers in debt these days . Some drop out with no degree but still have college debt. Talking to kids about saving for retirement when all they see is college debt ahead of them is difficult for them to process. Its difficult  to talk to young people about retirement savings who are starting a career in teaching but are $80,000 in the hole. I realize how lucky I was to walk out of college with a diploma and no debt. If I had to start off paying off that kind of debt, I'd probably still be working as I would not have been able to save what I did early on and see it compound.
