The statistics are troubling…
10,000 Americans begin their retirement every day.
Only 18% have more than $200,000 saved.
56% have less than $10,000 saved. (1)
Most Americans have not been able to save as much as they would have liked, or have lost money due the Great Recession of 2008/2009.
In addition, the Great Recession resulted in many workers in their 50s and 60s getting laid off, not being able to find comparable employment and choosing early retirement.
