COVID-19 and its impacts have raised questions over what retirement income will look like in the future. An American Century Investments survey reported 40% of participants are concerned about running out of money in retirement, while other reports found that despite maxing out on their 401(k), some participants are remaining optimistic. Additionally, many employees are still unsure of what Social Security will offer during retirement, especially younger workers. Experts argue a U.S. sovereign wealth fund could benefit retirement income, and others say the U.S. can learn from countries who push retirement savings preservation.
