How much of my paycheck should I save for retirement?


A reasonable goal is to save 10 percent of your pre-tax income in retirement savings vehicles. If you have the option, consider directing a portion from your paycheck to a 401(k) or another workplace savings plan. Check to see if your employer offers a matching contribution. Those with additional discretionary income may want to save extra money in a Roth IRA, if appropriate, which allows you to build retirement savings with after-tax dollars and potential tax-free income in the future.
