Saving money isn’t easy. Many Americans report that they have trouble saving because of unexpected expenses and strains on their budget—this coupled with the fact that more than a third of Americans lack access to an employer-sponsored retirement system means major financial hurdles when retirement comes around. Learn what makes saving so difficult and hear about a new strategy states are trying out to provide retirement accounts that may help more families prepare for long-term financial needs.
