Retirement Planning and Baby Boomers: It’s Not Too Late

American Baby Boomers born between 1946 and 1964 were the first generation to take charge of their own retirement planning, with the advent of the 401(k) in 1978 – when most Boomers were in their 20s – ushering in the era of “defined contribution” savings. Traditional company pensions would quickly decline and disappear for most workers.

Retirement Planning Generation X

Retirement Planning for Generation X

Between the ubiquitous Baby Boomers and the headline-grabbing Millennials, members of Generation X often feel forgotten. Born between 1965 and 1980, Gen X is the first generation of Americans at risk of being worse off financially than their parents. Having come of age during the Reagan-Bush and Clinton administrations, their early to mid-career earning years were disrupted by the dotcom bust and the Great Recession.

Retirement Planning for Millennials: Time is on Your Side

Millennials appear to be using their long runway to retirement planning wisely, saving at higher rates than their Gen X and Baby Boomer peers, and showing greater willingness to work with professional financial planners.
