ABSTRACT
The article discusses income savings and retirement. Some experts say if a person wants to be financially secure in retirement they should save 10% of their annual income. A report in the periodical "The Journal of Financial Planning" tells consumers the percentage of income they must save annually based on their age, income, and how much they've already saved.
