Just think about yourself; won’t you warn your friends with the same word – scam!
Just think twice – how big is big enough and still realizable?

People of America had always been conscious about their retired life and for last 10 or twelve years they are taking a few extra steps to invest their money. However, a lot of people still do not understand how to plan for retirement.
Here is a regular retirement guide that is used by some average people – those who do not know the potential of gradually saved amount.
It all depends on how many years do you have until you plan for a glorious retirement? If your present age is 25 and you want to retire at 65, you have 40 years to invest on your retirement plan.
Now find out the disposable amount you have every month – something that you can save. At the same time make an estimate of how much of liquid cash you want to have after retirement. Now use any retirement calculator to find out how much you need to save every month to get that amount.
This is good enough for those who are ready to live within a fixed income throughout their retired life. In this process you need to almost diminish your optional expenses. However, you are sure to run in this process, invest on creating some assets (for example real estate) other than pension amount so that you have something to rely on in future.
However, did you notice one thing! In this process you get almost the amount you have saved for 40 years as your retirement amount. They simply yielded some gross interest and did not work up to their full potential. There could be a huge difference if only you walked a few steps to talk to a financial planner or joined an investment club to find out a better way to use your savings.
