As it’s the summer fund raising season on public television, this week we are revisiting an interview with two top personal finance journalists, both now at The Wall Street Journal. Jonathan Clements and Jason Zweig tackle the three greatest financial challenges facing Americans. Watch the episode here.
New this week, we are sharing some interesting research on retirement savings. It’s from a recent T. Rowe Price survey which found that recent retirees with 401 (k)s feel on track meeting their financial goals. Some of their key findings are that retirees are living on less – on average, around 66% of their pre-retirement income. However, nearly 60% report that are living as well or better than when they were working. Almost 90% are reasonably satisfied with retirement so far and most think that are better off compared with how their parents fared in retirement.
