Weir says years near end of work life best time for retirement savings (USN&WR)

a PSC In The News reference, 2012

"How Long Should I Work Before Retirement?" - US News & World Report. 02/13/2012.

In this story on the reasons that many Americans are postponing retirement, David Weir says that not only does postponement reduce retirement years and increase years of asset growth, but saving in the several years preceding retirement is generally easier: "In those last few years, once the kids are out of college and they have paid off their mortgage, for many people, this is when they really have the ability to save."
