Most Georgians are not ready for retirement. The Association for Financial Counseling and Planning Education released a study today finding that over 40 percent of Georgians believe that they aren’t ready for retirement and aren’t saving enough. It also found that 25% of the survey participants “have less than $5,000 saved or invested for retirement (not counting home value).” The full survey results are available here.
While it may seem daunting, there are steps that we can all take to prepare for retirement. That’s why the Investor Advocacy Clinic is partnering to help put on When I’m 65, an investor education event at Georgia State Law on October 16 from 5-8 pm. The event is free, so long as you register in advance here.
We hope you’ll join us on October 16.
