NIA Aging Centers News Reference
Michael Hurd and Susann Rohwedder have found that single people are at a significantly greater risk than their married counterparts of having saved too little for retirement. They report that while 20% of married couples won't save enough, 35% of single men and 49% of single women will enter retirement financially unprepared.
