In March 2023, we surveyed 368 Americans across varying industries. We set out to learn more about the gaps in financial health experienced by Americans, so we could attempt to address their (your) needs.
Our key findings indicate that more support is needed to help Americans build wealth, in the form of savings and investments, and that this need prevails regardless of income.
Below is a summary of our key findings, and a shareable infographic with results.
69% of survey takers earned at least $75,000 in annual income, but 78% of respondents worried about money, 60% had less than $10,000 in savings, and 70% had no money left over some or all months.
Of those surveyed, 69% have less than $50,000 saved for retirement, and 40% of respondents aren’t investing outside of retirement at all.
