Flemington, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/26/2013 -- Prestige Wealth Management Group is excited to announce a new study on retirement planning in New Jersey. Many individuals are reviewing their current financial situation after the economic collapse in 2008. These individuals are finding that they may not be as ready to retire in the near future as they thought they would be. A new study from a Bank of America Merrill Lynch report recently found that a staggering 85% of people do not feel they have enough saved for retirement. The same percentage of people said it would be very difficult to save enough money to maintain their current living standards, when they finally do retire.
In regards to workplace retirement plans, an overwhelming 75% of survey respondents said they expect to still be working well into their 60s and 70s. Workplace financial planning in NJ was an important goal of the new study. 71% of survey respondents said that the largest or second-largest source of retirement income would be from their workplace retirement savings plan. This was followed by Social Security with 43% and other savings with 38%.
