Retirement planning - the phrase itself has so many implications. It hints at the fact that you will one day not be in your prime and hence not able to work. Whether we chose to acknowledge it or not, this fact is a harsh reality of life. So many people delay retirement planning because they do not want to acknowledge this fact. There is always the small voice at the back of the head that says, "Oh, but I'm still so young." Yes! You are young and full of vigor now and that is the very reason why you should start retirement planning.
