Personal Finance 101: A Young Person's Guide to Saving

(ARA) - Instant gratification, credit cards and I need it now. America's youth are growing up in a culture dominated by these ideas and values. So it's no surprise young adults today are not preparing for their financial futures.

The following six tips are designed to help young adults analyze their current financial situation, pay off debt and save for the future.

Start Now: Don't procrastinate when it comes to saving for retirement; begin now. Take advantage of company sponsored retirement programs such as a 401(k) or Simple IRA. Another option is a Roth IRA. This individual retirement account will allow you to begin saving tax-free, and tax-free withdrawals may be made after age 59 and a half.

Get Rid of Debt: Today's "buy now, pay later" mentality has forced many Americans into debt. The GoodLife survey found more than 47 percent of adults 18 to 34 had over $8,000 in debt, not including a home mortgage. And 57 percent did not know how long it would take to pay off these debts. Analyze your current debt situation and create a plan that pays off the debt quickly. By paying off debt, you will have more money to save for the future.

Make a Plan and Stick to It: After analyzing your current financial situation, determine a financial plan that suits you. Once your plan is set, stick to it. Consistency is key. Be sure your plan includes measures to eliminate debt and save for the long- and short-term.

Say No to Credit Cards: Credit card companies regularly flood college campuses enticing students with free T-shirts and other gifts. While credit cards can be a useful financial tool when used properly, the key is paying them off every month and avoiding interest payments. Say no to credit card spending when you don't have the money to zero-out the balance each month.

Talk with your Parents: Almost 48 percent of young adults first learned about saving and financial planning from their parents. Ask your parents and find out what has worked for them and what hasn't. Learning from their mistakes can help prevent you from making your own, and learning from their successes can help point you in the right direction financially.

Finance 101: Educate yourself on financial planning. There are many great resources available, including magazines, books, financial planners and local banks. Surround yourself with as much knowledge as possible so you can make an educated financial plan that will carry you well into the future.
