Retirement seems far away or it might seem unattainable, so why worry?

Investing $100 a month into a retirement account can not only help you get in a better habit of saving for your retirement, but it can also prove to be a solid safety net even if you haven’t saved at all towards retirement. Retirement needs aren’t going away just because you ignore them, and Social Security won’t be enough.  

If we look at returns per risk profile, compound interest plays a huge factor in growth.

This is only $100 a month. Which is only one-fifth of the maximum annual retirement contribution allowed for a Traditional IRA or a Roth IRA. Any amount more per month could greatly impact your earnings down the line.

By comparing the two different time frames of 5 years to 40 years, not only is the dollar value greatly different, but you'll notice the amount of Interest (Green) compared to the Periodic Deposit (Red, which was your $100 a month). In other words, by contributing $100 a month consistently and giving it enough time, your interest would far exceed your deposits.
