Startling statistics and a must read. It’s amazing that only 11 percent of Americans think that retirement is to include leisure and travel. The rest for the most part are just hoping they can pay their bills or sustain how they live. As Americans we should not lower our expectations on how we are going to live during retirement. But we must not either expect someone else to do it for us. Majority of the pensions are gone now so it makes it more important that you know where your money is and what it’s doing for you. Plan and save and educate yourself!!! It’s essential. The stats in this article are a must read.
