According to CNNMoney, roughly one-third of Americans have nothing at all saved for retirement, citing a 2016 study from GOBankingRates, and another 23% have less than $10,000 in their retirement funds. That’s more than half of all Americans not prepared for retirement! This may be because they don’t think they have the ability to plan and save for this, or they’ve been putting it off.
