April 2018 – Retirement Literacy Quiz
In 2017, the American College New York Life Center for Retirement Income published the results of its retirement literacy quiz. The results were stunning. Overall, only 26% of those taking the quiz passed with a passing score of 61% or better. Results were better for men (35% pass rate), the affluent (49% pass rate) and college graduates (40% pass rate). That said; it is clear that almost everyone needs more education on retirement income planning issues. If you’d like to take the quiz, click here.
