There is a reason the traditional age of retirement falls somewhere between 62 and 65. It takes a few solid decades of earning and saving to amass the amount of money one needs to live comfortably during non-working years. Given the shakiness of Social Security, the elimination of private employer pensions and benefits, and a future that is widely unknown by all of us without a clear crystal ball, planning for retirement seems like an overwhelming task.

It should feel that way because, for most, it is the most substantial goal we will save for throughout our adult lives.
