[Money Monday] When and how to start planning for your retirement

Beginning a savings plan today is better than waiting till later --- ArthaYantra

There is a saying that a penny saved is a penny earned. But the reality is a penny saved today is worth a penny more. This means irrespective of your age, beginning a savings plan today is better than waiting till later.

But the fact is, as soon as you start earning income, it is never too early to start putting aside some additional funds you can’t touch for some time.
