Mike Egan on: Millennials and Money—What They Need to Know

On this episode of Finance Rules, CFP Michael Egan shines a spotlight on a topic that is near and dear to the hearts of many parents and 20somethings: Millennials and Money.

“People in their 20s and early 30s have a lot of distractions, from wanting to buy a new car or maybe a house, to thinking about saving for a wedding or maybe a new baby’s education,” Egan knows. “Way off in the distance, they are thinking about retirement.”

And that’s a problem, Egan believes.

“Retirement saving should be their number-one goal,” he says, and the reason is simple. “Most young people today will not have a pension, and they will likely have reduced Social Security benefits. So that means they are the only ones saving for their retirement.”

In this podcast interview you’ll learn:

1. As a young person in there 20s and 30s, what are the most common financial planning mistakes?

2. What should their savings priorities be?

3. What is a good savings rate for retirement if you are young?

4. What else should young people do to get their financial house in order?
