Saving for retirement should be among everyone’s financial goals, regardless of age. No one knows what will happen to the Social Security system over the next generation or two, or what the official retirement age will be in 10 or 20 years.

But with debt following most people throughout life – particularly in the form of student loans, mortgages and credit card balances – it’s hard to find a good time to start putting money aside. That’s why you should start saving for retirement even if you are still in debt.
Sound daunting? Here’s how to set priorities and juggle competing demands.
