Don't Leave Your Retirement To Chance
Make sure you are saving enough for your retirement.
Current day Social Security payments cannot fully replace the level of income that most people made while they were working. Other savings are needed and often takes the form of employer-sponsored retirement plans.
Can you retire on $18,433?

Contribute – The 1% Rule
Signing up to participate in an employer-sponsored retirement plan is a great way to get on track for your retirement. Establishing a set percentage of your wages to contribute to your 401(k) plan is a good starting point. Each year you can increase the amount of your contribution by 1% of your wages until you reach the maximum amount allowed. The 1% rule puts more retirement money away each year, without crimping your budget.
