Most Americans failed this eight-question retirement quiz

Fidelity survey exposes dangerous knowledge gaps

Getting retirement right is a big deal. Getting it wrong is even worse.

The data vary from survey to survey, but we know for a fact that far too many Americans have saved little (or nothing) and most of the rest of us probably haven't saved enough.

Fidelity Investments decided to tackle this problem with a short but in-depth survey based on retirement assumptions people make. Perhaps unsurprisingly, most Americans missed these eight key retirement questions — and some were way, way off.


This is not the first I've seen such a quiz, and it may not surprise many of you that most people are not very well read-up or prepared for retirement. But I like to review these things and take measure against my own preparations.
