Retirement Reality: Saving Early Makes Retirement Easier

On, the ABC News affiliate of South Florida’s website, August 7, 2006, Benjamin Tobias was widely quoted in the article Retirement Reality: Saving Early Makes Retirement Easier by Kathleen Corso.  Ben explained, “Gone are the days of guaranteed pensions, and Social Security is far from a sure thing either.  You have to be responsible for your own well-being upon retirement.”  Thus, saving is necessary.  “Many people don’t think they can do it, but when I sit down and show them how they can cut back on spending while still enjoying themselves, most find it fairly easy to do.”
