Retirement Savings Eroded By Fees And 'Leakage,' Study Finds
Consumers' 401(k)s and Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) are being eroded by fees, “leakage” and low participation rates, according to a new analysis of the Federal Reserve’s latest triennial Survey of Consumer Finances.
In a research note, Alicia H. Munnell, director of the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College, breaks down the impact of erosion over time on 401(k)/IRA balances.
Using data supplied by the Vanguard Group, Munnell analyzes a hypothetical 401(k)/IRA balance of $373,000 for a 29-year-old in 1982 who reached the age of 60 last year.
Assuming the 29-year-old, who earned a median income in 1982, contributed 6 percent of his salary with a 50 percent match from his employer and placed the contributions in a 50-50 stock and bond allocation, the 401(k)/IRA balance would have grown to $373,000.
