    I'm 33, and I've saved nothing yet, because I'm still paying off my law school debt. And no, I don't imagine I'll be relying much on social security. Or rather I don't think it'd be wise to assume I'll be able to rely on it.

    At this time, I don't see myself ever wanting to retire, TBH.

    Just my but retiring doesn't always mean that you stop working.
    It can mean that you have the flexibility to stop working for someone else.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Well I'll be 21 in September, and I should be done with school when I'm 23, and I plan to open a CD and put a part of my paycheck in it for my retirement. I don't count on SS being there for me when I get that age, so I should save for myself. So that's my plan, even though I'm too young for the poll

    I've run my own business before, I have no interest in ever doing it again. I'm content to work for someone else.

    CD's are paying to well at the moment.
    You may want to consider an online savings account instead.

    I applaud you for thinking about this now though.
