Saving for Retirement is a Common Source of Stress

A new survey released August, 2016 by Schwab Retirement Plan Services Inc. highlights how saving enough money for a comfortable retirement is, in fact, the most common “financial stress inducer” for people of all ages, even millennials. Almost four out of 10 millennials named saving for retirement (38 percent) a significant source of financial stress above all others, far surpassing student loans (24 percent), monthly expenses (29 percent) and credit-card debt (26 percent). 

Almost one out of two surveyed by Schwab feels it is impossible to save enough in a 401(k) for a comfortable retirement.
