Info for Starting Roth IRA

I have really been thinking about doing more investing in the near future, as I want to be ready for retirement, whenever that comes. I hope that it is still a long ways away, because I do not really like the idea of being retired. I am not sure what I would do if I did not have to go to work, but it does not seem like it would be very much fun. Anyway, I am checking out to learn about Roth IRAs and to see if this is an option that would work for me. I have never really read up on the subject before, but I feel like it is as good of a time as any to do so.

I should have learned more about this type of investment in the past, but I was happy with the investing I was doing at the time. But now, I have thought about it some more and I realize that I have not really been investing or saving enough to make sure I will have the money I need to live on once I get to the age of retirement. It is a scary thought to not have enough money to live on, and it is something that I want to make sure I am able to do.

One thing that is uncertain about retirement is that you never know how long you are actually going to need your money. For all I know, I could live to be 100 and if I only plan my retirement based on living to be 80 years old or something, that would be another 20 years that I did not have enough money for. Does not sound like a very good situation in my opinion, so I need to try to plan carefully.
