Quicken family of products reveals that Americans
seem ill-prepared for an economic slowdown. In
fact, the survey indicates that around 30% of
Americans could only sustain themselves financially
for a few months in the event of job loss; that
same number of Americans don't even contribute to
a pre-tax retirement program, or even know how much
they need to retire.
. . .
Americans have no idea how much they will need to
live on once they stop working.
