Will you be able to retire with dignity?
NRIS released a state-by-state analysis of economic pressures facing future retirees. The report is being released in conjunction with their annual policy conference to be held today in D.C.
The report Financial Security Scorecard: A State-by-State Analysis of Economic Pressures Facing Future Retirees ranks the 50 states and the District of Columbia relative to three areas: potential retirement income; major retiree costs such as housing and health care; and labor market conditions.
The report provides a relative ranking of each state based on the anticipated ability of all of its residents to reach a secure retirement. California falls at the bottom of the list, which emphasizes the importance of working on retirement security solutions here in California.
