Retirement Insecurity

According to a new study, 51% of U.S. households are now at risk of being unable to maintain their standard of living in retirement (Wall Street Journal)

In 2007, only 40% of U.S. households were considered at risk of falling short in retirement, down a tick from 41% in 2004, when Boston College began publishing the calculation. The percentage has hovered around 50% for the past decade, reflecting the effects of the financial crisis.
