    Full retirement age is for persons who are sixty-two years old and/or older. When you are sixty-one years and nine months old you can file for retirement benefits through your local social security office. If you are not yet ready to retire completely you can still apply for Medicare once you reach age sixty-five. read more

    The best thing to do is start early. If you haven't started yet, then you are late. You can open Roth IRA accounts for as little as $50 monthly. I also diversify my investments so as not to put all my eggs in a single basket. Try a few different things; some risky, some not so risky and always do your best to adjust for losses.

    If you start early enough (in your 20's), you can retire with some serious coin, even with conservative investments.

    Preferably after discussion with a qualified Financial Planner, one should contribute  around 15% of  income as soon as one starts working.   On reaching retirement age, one should be in the top 5% of the population, who are able to retire comfortably.
