    Knowing how much you will need for retirement is the first important step. From there you'll be able to decide whether your current savings approach will be sufficient to provide the income you'll need at retirement. I don't know if we're supposed to tout our own hubs here but my hub explains how to  calculate your target figure.

    You should begin saving for retirement when you begin working.  The earlier you start, the easier it will be to save enough for a comfortable retirement.  If you start from the beginning, you won't miss the amount of money that goes to your retirement accounts.  In many cases, the amount deducted for retirement accounts is offset by the lowered tax you pay.  For example, if you have designate $100 per month for your 401K, you might only see a reduction in your take home pay of $75.  This amount will vary based on your salary and exemptions.  For more information, see my hub:
