How many Gen X and Gen Y consumers are saving for retirement? Not nearly enough, according to LIMRA, an industry-funded research group.
In a new report, titled Sowing the Seeds for Retirement: Gen X and Gen Y Markets, LIMRA found that younger investors are not giving retirement the attention it deserves. Less than half of Gen X consumers (46%) selected retirement as their top reason for saving, with vacation and travel the top choice for 38% of Gen Xers. Younger Gen Y consumers were even more delinquent, selecting vacations over retirement as the single most important reason to save.
