Whatever... Just Sign Me Up

Policymakers have been trying for years to find ways to boost America's dismal retirement savings rate, with only limited success. A 2016 study by the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) found that as of 2013, almost half of American families had no retirement savings at all. Given those results, it's no surprise that a separate study from The Center for Retirement Research at Boston College found that over half of American households are at risk of failing to maintain their standard of living upon retirement.
