"Retire With Dignity On $310 a Month."
Don’t believe that headline.
It can’t be done.
Millions of Americans will be faced with the stark reality of working well into their “Golden Years."

If you are an average middle class working American earning between $50,000 - $100,000 per year, your prospects for retirement are bleak, at best.
A Wells Fargo survey found 37 percent of middle-class Americans said they’d never retire and plan to either work until their health fails or they die. Another 34 percent plan to work until they’re 80. Even those nearing retirement are woefully unprepared.
The average individual between 55 and 64 has only $104,000 in savings. Invested in an annuity, this nest egg would yield a monthly income of only $310.
The days of safely retiring on a pension are gone, and with the expansion of Defined Contribution plans like your employer-sponsored 401(k), the Government has transferred responsibility to you to plan for your retirement.
What’s happening to you is a national disgrace.
But what do you know about planning for retirement?
You lack investment discipline and expertise
You misuse your retirement accounts
You have little appetite for risk
