Starting a pension plan as early as possible is extremely beneficial, and you will certainly thank yourself later in life. You are never too young to start thinking about your long term money plans. As you leave education and begin working, your employer will talk to you about a pension scheme, and will discuss with you about how much you wish to contribute.
Pension contributions are done in percentages and you can begin with the minimum amount or start at a higher contribution and reassess how you are managing with current finances. Your pension contribution amount can be changed at any time, but it is always to keep your percentage as high as you can manage, as this will benefit you once you retire.
Many young people put their pension to the back of their mind as they focus on saving for a home mortgage, wedding or even a year of travelling, however having a pension plan in place as early as possible is the best way to invest your own money.
