Teens lack of retirement Knowledge Should Scare You

Think about a teen that you know. How much do you think he or she knows about retirement? Where have they, if at all, learned about the topic of saving for their future after they retire from their career?

These questions were the driving force behind Junior Achievement’s (JA) 2018 Teens and Retirement survey.

Overview:

From August 13th and August 20th of 2018, Junior Achievement USA, American International Group, Inc. (AIG), and Wakefield Research conducted an online survey focused on teens understanding of saving for their future retirement.

JA Teens & Retirement Methodological Notes

The JA/AIG Survey was conducted by Wakefield Research (www.wakefieldresearch.com) among 1,000 nationally representative U.S. teens, ages 13-18, who are not currently enrolled in college, between August 13 and August 20, 2018, using an email invitation and an online survey.  Results of any sample are subject to sampling variation. The magnitude of the variation is measurable and is affected by the number of interviews and the level of the percentages expressing the results. For the interviews conducted in this particular study, the chances are 95 in 100 that a survey result does not vary, plus or minus, by more than 3.1 percentage points from the result that would be obtained if interviews had been conducted with all persons in the universe represented by the sample.
