Schwab Study On Retirement
While younger people tend to be more indifferent and not ready to change their saving patterns, some older Americans are more at ease with their retirement plans.
Almost four in 10 Americans (39%) are not currently saving for retirement and, despite market losses, six in 10 Americans (62%) have not adjusted their thinking about what age they will retire, according to the "Charles Schwab Real Life Retirement" quarterly pulse survey.
Thirty-percent of those in the 55-63 age range felt "contentment" in describing their retirement preparedness. Fifty-one percent in that same age bracket have saved less than $500,000, though they most commonly believe they will need $2,000,000 to retire comfortably.
