Investing towards the future is an absolute must and one should start planning for retirement straight away.
Having a sufficient income in retirement should be a major financial priority, as it is obvious that one day you will retire and when you do, you will need an income. At present there are tax incentives on offer for pension planning, which everyone should take advantage of, including those few who are wealthy enough not to worry about their retirement income.
