It’s hard to look at retirement statistics and numbers across generations, because of proportionality. Baby Boomers (born 1946-1964) have saved the most, followed by Generation X (1965-1978), and then Millennials (1979-2000). And of course that makes sense because the older you are, the more time you’ve had to save.
