I'm 29, and I started saving about age 23 for 6 months in a 401k. Then I started at a company that did not have any qualified plans, and I didn't know about IRAs and such. Took a break for a couple years and started again around 25-26.
When people ask me at what age I want to retire, I tell them that I'm already retired and just working for the fun of it. Try it! Makes getting out of bed a little easier on some days.
I'm 21 and still in college. I've got a full time job and I've just started saving for my retirement in an IRA. My company offers a 401k plan, but right now I'd prefer to use an IRA. My employer doesn't match funds until one year of service. I hope to retire around age 40 :) I think I should be able to retire around 50 if I save around 15% of my salary.
