Too often potential employees only consider salary, and so it
is important to remind your young adult to look at the other
benefits a company will pay as well. Benefits such as a match
on the company retirement may be the least important point to
your young adult, but you can teach them the importance of saving
early. As a parent you can stress that it is never too early
to start saving for retirement, and many older savers have learned
this lesson the hard way. Teach your young adult about how retirement
investments work by viewing How
Investments Grow (PDF), which
also demonstrates how compounding can help with savings goals.
You can help your young adult to understand
the importance of benefits and insurance coverages.
