The National Retirement Risk Index (NRRI) measures the percentage of working-age households that are at risk of being unable to maintain their pre-retirement standard of living in retirement. It addresses one of the most compelling challenges facing the nation today: ensuring retirement security for an aging population.
Key findings in the NRRI show that:
- The retirement landscape is shifting dramatically, making the outlook for retiring Baby Boomers and Generation Xers far less sanguine than for earlier retirees.
- About half of households are “at risk” of not having enough to maintain their living standards in retirement.
- Saving more and working longer improve the outlook.
The National Retirement Risk Index is sponsored by First Eagle Investments.
