Listen to Jenny Hoff’s interview with author, speaker and professor Teresa Ghilarducci on exactly how much you need to be saving right now to be ready for retirement. Whether you’re in your 20s, 30s, 40s or beyond, there is a number you should be hitting every month to ensure a comfortable retirement. Ghilarducci talks about how much of a house you can really afford (it’s not what you think), what kind of debt needs to get settled fast, how you need to think about spending in order to make sure you save enough and what retirement looks like when you have enough to take care of your twilight years.
