30s — 50s Risk: Insufficient Savings

Many Americans today are not saving enough for retirement. In a recent 2016 survey conducted by Employee Benefit Research Institute and Greenwald & Associates, on average 59.5% of people in this generation, ages 35-54, have saved less than $50,000 for retirement. The earlier you start saving, the better off you will be and the easier it will be to continue saving throughout your working years. By waiting a mere 10 years to save, you could be costing your retirement plan account balance hundreds of thousands of dollars.
