New research, the LPL Research Retirement Index, from LPL Financial ranked U.S. states on their attractiveness for pre-retirees as they save and prepare for the challenges ahead inretirement. According to David Reich, Executive Vice President Head of Retirement Partners at LPL, this new index is important because most other retirement indexes examine how people are doing in retirement as opposed to looking at those people saving for retirement. Reich believes that this retirement index is crucial to jumpstarting conversations with younger individuals about the importance of saving for retirement.
