FDIC Money Guide for Young Adults and Teens
The FDIC has published a collection of simple, practical tips for young adults and teens on saving, managing money, and avoiding financial scams. This special edition of the agency's quarterly FDIC Consumer News (Fall 2012), entitled "For Young Adults and Teens: Quick Tips for Managing Your Money," also includes suggestions for parents and caregivers on saving for a child's future and teaching youngsters about money.
Retirement Readiness NOW is not just about saving money and not just something you do just before retiring. Money is very important, but that’s not all. There’s a lot more to planning for your future than putting aside income out of each paycheck for retirement.
What else is there?
Happiness, both today and in your future years, is based on your total well-being. So, when planning for your future, you also need to consider your total retirement well-being that encompasses the following:
Networking - What are you doing today that will allow you to be engaged, challenged and fulfilled in retirement?
Overall Health - What are you doing to stay healthy so that you can enjoy your retirement years?
Wealth - How well are you managing your income and investing for your future so that you will be able to support your desired lifestyle in retirement?
