Starting Early

The earlier you start in life, your retirement plan can earn more with less contribution…


This hypothetical example is based on monthly contributions of $416.66 for Steve and Maria, made at the beginning of the month to a tax-deferred workplace savings plan and a 7% annual rate of return compounded monthly. Your own plan account may earn more or less than this example, and income taxes will be due when you withdraw from your account. Investing in this manner does not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss in declining markets. 582769.2.1
