 Is Retirement in Your Future???
Whether you are planning to retire in six months, six years, or if retirement is too far ahead to contemplate, it is never too late to keep good records. Saving check stubs, date books, and copies of your employment records are just some of the ways to avoid confusion involving start dates and employers. Think about creating a job history folder to keep track of where you've worked. It may come in handy and make the process much easier on you.
