At particular risk is retirement preparedness. According to National Retirement Risk Index (NRRI) research conducted by the Center for Retirement Research (CRR) at Boston College, the impact of divorce on households is significant – those having at least one person who has been through a divorce increases their risk of not being able to maintain their standard of living in retirement by seven percentage points.
The good news is that with careful planning, many divorced couples may improve the chances of enjoying a financially secure retirement.
The National Retirement Risk Index (NRRI), published by the Center for Retirement Research (CRR) at Boston College, measures the percentage of working-age households at risk of being unable to maintain their pre-retirement standard of living during retirement.
Prudential served as the exclusive sponsor of the National Retirement Risk Index.
