can doom retirement plans --- A Fidelity
Investment study indicates that while 63% of today's workers plan
to work in retirement, they shouldn't count on making up for inadequate
savings by doing so, since such plans are often doomed by unexpected
health problems. The study found the typical working American is saving
at a rate to replace about 58% of income in retirement, but that figure
factors in private savings, Social Security benefits and pensions.
is our oldes state?--- If you said Maine with
an average age of 41.2 years you are correct. The youngest is Utah
with an average age of 29.5 years. Typical eastern retirement states
like Florida (rank 6) and South Carolina (rank 26) are older than
the western retirement state of Arizona (rank 47).
