CFO Focus: I Can’t Save Now Because . . .

An advisor friend recently shared the following list with me. It dates back to circa 1945.

I can’t save now because:
Age 20 — I am too young and still in college.
Age 25 — I can’t save now because we just got married.
Age 30 — I can’t save now because we just bought a home.
Age 35 — I can’t save now because we just had another child.
Age 40-50 — I can’t save now, we have the kids in college.
Age 55 — I can’t save now, I have just gotten a new job.
Age 60 — I can’t save now, I am too close to retirement.
Age 65 — I can’t save now, I only receive $9.00 per week from Social Security.

It seems some things never really change.
