If you are making $50,000 a year, the thought of racking up $1 million for retirement can seem daunting. Yet with a little dedication and a lot of time, you can get there. As a rule of thumb, most financial advisors suggest you save 10% to 15% of your annual salary. Personal finance website Nerdwallet crunched the numbers, and we can tell you exactly how much of your $50,000 you’ll need to tuck away to get there.
Just a few things to remember: these numbers assume you have no money in your retirement plan, that you will get a conservative 6% return on your investments and that you will retire at age 65. The math also does not account for potential pay increases, employer matches, inflation, or any curveballs life may throw at you. So plan accordingly.

  • If you have debt, do prioritize debt repayment before saving unless you are an experienced investor who is confident of earning more than your debt rate. But again if you are an experienced investor, you will probably not end up with debt in the first place.

  • Moral of this story, start saving in your 20s, don't wait until you are in your late 30s like I did. Playing catch up is not easy.

  • Aloha! Sorry to bother you.😢 If you're financially blessed, would you mind sharing some with me? I'm saving up to get my laptop working or get a new one. I badly needed one to be able to work again. 😭 Any amount will do. Been trying here in YT but haven't gotten any savings for the laptop yet though. Trust me, I did try everything already. I'm out of options. 😢 Still have bills to be paid. I'm so lost. So broke. 😭 P.S. Kindly ignore this instead of being mean to me. I've had too much. I'm so vulnerable rn. 😢

  • The major challenges investors face may range from controlling impulsiveness to the frail of compulsion. Most newbies and would-be investors often undermine and most often neglect the importance of technical analysis with regards to trading. Technical analysis overly predicts the movement of asset prices regardless of what is happening in the wider or broader market. Essentially, the process involves studying the paths of a particular asset movement in the past so as to establish a sustainable pattern that can be used to predict future movements. Permit me to say that, it’s is best advice you find a working strategy/daily signals that works well in other to accumulate and grow a very strong portfolio ahead. However , i will advice investors and newbies to take full advantage and have total control of the market to buy and not to hodl at this rate and to trade with Ben Mason strategy/daily signals which has been so profitable and accurate. In less than 5 weeks trading with Benjamin's daily signals, i was able to grow a total of 6.9 btc with my initial investment of 1.5 btc, this you would say is a very good profit. Mr Keen is a true resource in space today and can be reach via : WhatsApp: +447- 8621-00767 and Telegram: @ Ben_keen * for inquiries into profitable trading systems

      Antonio LorenzoAntonio Lorenzo2 oy oldin
    • I love your optimism but the trade market doesn't run on luck or prayer even some of these videos online don't really break down and expose you to all the risk that involves trading,The stock market is changing constantly and every successful trader wants to change with it wants to improve and update their understanding of it so the profit will keep on rolling in. Even brokers with years of experience and hefty sums in their accounts still study and work hard at understanding the complexity of the market to their best. This complexity makes it harder for newbies with very little to no experience trading to make profit from their investments. Case study is myself I got into the stock market after my neighbor moved out of his rented apartment into his own home, not to sound too envious but "who wouldn't want that"? So I started researching and I started with a demo account after a few unsuccessful trades I got into partnership with Mr Hovik Morte who I met through good recommendations of his clients. Mr Hovik now handles all the analysis and calculations of my account. This giving me more time to become a better father and husband, All I have earned and learned from the market is from the $4,000 i enrolled into his investment programme with. Hovik has generated more profit than i could ever imagine. But you can't expect less from the best.

      Claire LubranoClaire Lubrano2 oy oldin
    • @Claire Lubrano as in, if we can get shot in random normal everyday places, i.e movie theaters, malls, & Wal-Mart, why do we have to wait till 65 to enjoy life if it doesn't seem that we are able to enjoy life at everyday places?

    • That’s interesting, I’ve never heard of anyone factoring in mass shootings when planning retirement before...

  • Another big thing is to don't compare yourself to others with their salary. You never know how they are really living. Plus while your saving money make sure you enjoy yourself. Take trips, go out with family and have fun. You don't want to have fun at 65 years old.

    Paul HoPaul Ho2 oy oldin
    • @Paul Ho alright so first off take everything with a grain of salt and do your own research haha. But a 401K is a retirement account - I believe it has to be offered by your employer. So its a place to put money that gets matched by your employer and grows tax free till you retire. The S&P 500 is just an index or a measurement of 500 large companies that make up the vast majority of the stock market. And historically - the average growth is 10% per year. I think there are mutual funds that are meant to mimic the S&P 500 - so theoretically if you invest in those you should have similar growth

      J SebbyJ Sebby2 oy oldin
    • @J Sebby as not an expert, how different is that from a 401k? Would that be just a mutual fund?

      Paul HoPaul Ho2 oy oldin
    • @Paul Ho fair enough lol. I mean I'm not going to give you financial advice because I'm not an expert haha - but if you just play the market itself as a whole like the S&P 500 it has an average historical return of 10%.

  • Great video, simple and to the point. I have two considerations, 6% is not conservative when looking at long intervals. DJIA (Dow Jones) returned that on average on the last 15 years and stocks are not conservative investment. Inflation might be low in the US but you have to account for that. When you put this two together you come to the conclusion that you need to save more than what was informed.

    • Pretty sure they took the average of 8% returns and subtracted the average 2% inflation. Thats how you get 6% and it does sort of count for inflation

    • Investing in an index fund will yield an average of 7% returns above and beyond inflation. You shouldn't be holding $1 million in cash. If you spend less than the money grows, you remain a millionaire indefinitely.

  • You may reach that million dollars goal, but the value of that amount will diminish along the time, accordingly with the annual inflation :/ Having a million dollar right now, at 65 sounds good, but having a million dollar at 65 in 2050 may not be that sweet, I'm afraid. Don't get me wrong, the best moment to start investing is right now, but the future seems dark and full of shadows.

  • Automating your finances is such a game changer. I recently increased my 401(k) contribution to 15% after paying off student loans. I also have a mix between my pre-tax 401(k) and Roth IRA. What do folks think about having a blend between the two?

    • @Xuan Chinh thank you! I followed Dave Ramsey’s baby steps and put the majority of my take home pay to student loans. It all came down to focusing on one financial goal. Once you pay down debt you can take advantage of your number one wealth building tool; your income.

  • Ehh, it does matter how old you are although your math is basically correct. Also, it’s not “saving”. Saving is putting your cash is a dumpy 0.01% account and losing it away to inflation. This is *investing* and you should be clear about what modes you are using. Ramit Sethi recommends low cost Index Funds, possibly on a Roth IRA.
