Define your long-term goals

Regardless of how long you have before you plan to retire, it’s a good idea to begin thinking about the lifestyle you want to have when the time comes. Having a picture of where you want to be when you retire is the first step to getting there.

Assess your current financial situation

Once you have an idea of what you want for the future, take a good look at your current financial situation. Are you investing in the future now? How much can you afford to put away? Saving even a few dollars each pay period will allow your retirement savings to grow over time and keep moving you closer to a comfortable retirement.

It all adds up the sooner you START, the more you save.

That’s why MainePERS is pleased to offer this MaineSTART program—the easy, affordable way to save for retirement.
