Short Description

Not all households are on track for a sustainable retirement, according to the JP Morgan Guide to Retirement 2018 (J.P. Morgan, 2018). Previous studies analyze who is retirement ready and the impact of decisions. This research aims to understand certain factors that lead to being “on track” or “not on track” and the specific roles that children’s educational savings/expenditures and financial literacy interventions play in retirement readiness.
