The 2013 Annual National Survey Assessing Household Savings (released during America Saves Week) revealed that only about half of Americans reported good savings habits.

·         54% said they “have a savings plan with specific goals.”

·         43% said they “have a spending plan that allows you to save enough money to achieve the goals of your saving plan.”

·         50% of those not retired said they “save for retirement at work through a 401(k) or other contributory plan.”

·         41% said that, “outside of work,” they “save automatically through regular preauthorized transfers from checking to savings or investments.”

·         49% know their net worth.

 

The results of the 2014 survey will be released on February 24th, 2014 to mark the start of America Saves Week 2014!
