Here’s something you can share with your grandchildren or adult children if you’re already in or near retirement. More than half of adult Americans say one of the great regrets of their lives is not saving more for retirement, according to a new survey by American Century Investments. The survey also says most people expect to receive more help from their employers in deciding how much to save, and how to save and invest.
Participants identified not saving more for retirement as their biggest personal regret. For pre-retirees that number grew by 10 percent to 44. For both groups, lack of saving ranked higher than regrets over personal relationships, careers and even not being a better person.
