"More than half (52 percent) of people approaching retirement (age 55-64) say they wish they had started saving for the future sooner ... Many say they wish they had made smarter financial decisions earlier in their career, including saving more of their paycheck (47 percent) and investing their savings more aggressively (34 percent).... Forty-five percent of respondents age 55-64 say financial readiness is the most important factor in determining when they will retire.... Only 35 percent say they saved in an IRA or met with a financial advisor, 32 percent have calculated the income they would need for each year of their retirement, and 12 percent have saved in a healthcare savings account."
