Prepare for retirement

By: 
Eugene Wiesner

The average family of four has about $6,200 in savings.Many people in their fifties have about $17,000 in savings. The higher end for some richer people in their sixties may have as much as $250,000 saved but not very often. A person should have about six times what they earned averaged per year by the time they retire. With inflation and the cost of living rising yearly it will be very hard to retire comfortably for many. One way to save more money for retirement is to work two jobs all your life and save as much money from the second job as you can. Another way is to have a side business. And another way is to win a big lottery. And the final way is to work until you’re 90 years old … but remember save as much as possible for your retirement because it comes faster than you might think.
