There’s a general consensus that, when it comes to funding retirement, we have a problem — some say an impending crisis, even. In short, most people aren’t saving enough money.
There is, however, some good news. Specifically, people are saving more than they used to. And there’s good reason to think that the trend will continue, because it’s largely the result of new policies in 401(k) plans (most importantly automatic enrollment, but also reasonable default investment options and lower costs), which aren’t likely to go away any time soon.
