The Cost of Waiting to Save for Retirement



More than 65% of professionals have not yet begun saving for retirement. Putting off saving for your retirement will only cost you dearly when you are ready to retire.


More years, more money

Life expectancy increases and you are expected to live until 92. Living longer means you will need more money in retirement. We all know that the pensions that previous generations had from governments are no longer an option. You will be lucky to get 30% of your pre-retirement income. Will that be enough?


To add to the life expectancy, the cost of living is increasing. In the UK, the inflation rate is 5.1%. In the US, it is now 7%, the highest in nearly 40 years. This means your £1 is now worth £0.93. Even at a low 3% inflation over the next 25 years, a carton of milk purchased today at £3.49 will cost you £7.31 in 2038.

Investing now can reduce your taxes: Depending on the country where you are a tax resident you may be able to deduct your contributions from your income tax. This means you will pay less in tax from each paycheck. And once you retire, you would fall under a different tax bracket and potentially pay less tax on your funds. This is not a tax advice, each country has their own regulations. If you opt for a fixed income plan, such as the 12-month Fixed Income, as this is categorised as a loan, in some countries interest you receive could be tax exempt.


Your money can earn money for you

When you invest into fixed interest rate products such as the 12-month Fixed Income Plan, your savings will earn a fixed income of 12% to 14%. You can either take your interest as income or have it reinvested into the plan and allow it to compound over the years.


The sooner you start, the more you will have.


Still not convinced? Here is an example:

Marie started saving 100 USD a month at the age of 25. After 40 years, she has 191,700 USD. Peter started saving 300 USD a month at the age of 45. After 20 years he saved 136,700 USD.


In the end, the real cost is your quality of life in retirement. You have the choice and the power today to make sure you have a comfortable financial-stress free retirement or face struggles.
