What are your retirement fantasies? Whether you dream of world travel or simply maintaining today's lifestyles while volunteering for a favorite cause, it's important to take your retirement seriously--before it becomes a reality. For the vast majority of Americans, it is unlikely that the U.S. Social Security System and pension checks alone will finance retirement because the power of those benefits are diminishing. So, it is likely that most people will have to rely heavily on their own savings and investments during retirement. Once you project how much it will cost to live the retirement life you want, you'll have a realistic goal to work toward. And a company-sponsored retirement plan could help you achieve your goal.
