According to a survey conducted by Bankers Life Center for a Secure Retirement, middle income boomers aren’t paying much attention to planning for their old age.
Here are some of the results:
While 61% have taken at least one step in retirement planning, about only 1% have taken all the steps.
Only 25% have calculated a monthly retirement goal – no information on what method they used – but only 12% have translated that into an account balance goal.
Only 9% have developed a formal, written plan (how this happened with only 1% having completed all the steps, noted above) is a little interesting.
Nevertheless, they still have some work to do, it appears. Maybe a good first step might be attending our retirement planning webinar this coming Saturday. They can learn more and register here.
