Top Penny Stocks To Own Right Now

Financial security in retirement is far from guaranteed, because Social Security’s future is unclear. Social Security’s funding from payroll taxes has fallen shy of payments to Social Security recipients since 2010, and according to Social Security’s trustees, the trust fund that’s been making up for the shortfall will run out of money in 2034, causing an across-the-board cut in benefits of about 25%.

The uncertainty associated with Social Security’s future increases the pressure on workers to save more; however, a recent study by Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies finds that a shockingly high proportion of people aren’t taking advantage of their employer’s retirement savings plan. Furthermore, millions of Americans who are participating in these plans are failing to make the most of them. If you’re forgoing a 401(k) or 403(b) plan or only contributing a little to one, then you could wind up running out of money in retirement.
