The Cost of Waiting

Compounding, or compound interest, is interest computed on the accumulated unpaid interest as well as on the original investment. The chart below compares two 25-year-olds who both contribute $200 per month to their company retirement plan and receive an 8% annual rate of return compounded monthly. Cynthia contributes for 10 years and then stops.Todd waits 10 years and contributes until his retirement at age 65. Even though Todd contributed more money than Cynthia, his savings will never catch up with hers because her money earned interest for 40 years compared to his 30.
