    I graduated college with no assets or investments whatsoever- I am determined that my kids will never be in a position like this.

    It's nice if you can do it--so many finish college or other post secondary education with debt.
    I've been a pilgrim on this earth, since the day of my birth, I'm a long way from my home.

    Well unfortunately my kids will graduate with college debt, but the upside is they will still have private retirement accounts, being a good 10 years ahead of their peers.

    A bit late in his case- but not too late for many of us...

    Never too late--but sometimes it would be better if you started sooner.

    In his case I think it actually is too late. I do not think you can contribute to a private retirement account once you have started drawing down a public pension
