Celebrating Responsible Growth
It’s hard to believe it’s been about three years since my co-founders and I started Guideline and began our mission to create a retirement Americans can look forward to. It certainly was a mission worth starting: research by the Economic Policy Institute indicates that only about half of workers have any retirement savings, and the average savings for couples approaching retirement is just $17,000. Half of small business employees in the private sector don’t even have access to a retirement plan. That’s a big problem—a crisis in fact—and, as I’ve previously expressed, legacy 401(k) providers only perpetuate it.
