Contributing to a retirement account EARLY in your life and EARLY in the year can pay big dividends over the long run. How? The magic (well, not quite magic) of compound interest goes to work and increases its power with time, more time between opening a retirement account and needing the money and more time in a year to collect on the average rate of return.
