Here’s how much money you should have saved at every age

When it comes to savings, Americans are falling short. In fact, about half of US families have zero retirement account savings. “Particularly the younger generation likes to think, ‘I’ll save more when I’m making more.’ But whether you’re making $50,000 a year or $200,000 a year, we all have challenges saving,” says Kimmie Greene, money expert at Intuit and spokeswoman for Mint.com. “Because oftentimes what happens is, when people make more,” she says, “they end up spending more.”

Here's how much money you should have saved at every age

When it comes to savings, Americans are falling short. Nearly 70% of adults have less than $1,000 in their savings accounts.

Retirement funds are looking equally bleak. In fact, about half of US families have zero retirement account savings.

“Particularly the younger generation likes to think, ‘I’ll save more when I’m making more.’ But whether you’re making $50,000 a year or $200,000 a year, we all have challenges saving,” says Kimmie Greene, money expert at Intuit and spokeswoman for Mint.com.

If you’re over 55, take this job and love it

Perhaps the best time to change up your career is when you’re near its end. Close to one in five individuals aged 65 and over continues to punch the clock every day, according to the Pew Research Center. Meanwhile, more than half of Americans ages 50 to 64 are working and not retired, according to data from the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Indeed, older employees may continue working because they need to strengthen their finances. But 9-to-5 doesn’t have to be a grin

Indeed, older employees may continue working because they need to strengthen their finances.

But 9-to-5 doesn’t have to be a grind — if you plan for it, said Kerry Hannon, author of “Getting the Job You Want After 50 for Dummies.”

“If there’s a kind of work that you want to move toward when you retire,” she said, “it’s important to give yourself time to try things out, get the skills and do the job first to see if it’s something that will catch you on fire.”

Trump travel ban leads Iranian tech exec to seek growth elsewhere

Amin Shokrollahi was supposed to be in Silicon Valley last week to accept an award at a prominent semiconductor conference called DesignCon.

He never made it.

President Donald Trump’s travel ban targeting citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries forced Shokrollahi, a native Iranian who left for Germany when he was 16, to stay behind in Switzerland, home to his tech start-up Kandou Bus.

A federal judge in Seattle on Friday granted a nationwide temporary restraining order against Trump’s action, which would be welcome news for Shokrollahi and others if made permanent. An appeals court upheld the restraining order on Thursday. However, Trump has vowed to overturn the judge’s stay, meaning the rules could change on short notice.

Regardless of the outcome, Shokrollahi is now rethinking his entire business plan, which had included hiring 80 to 100 engineers and designers in the U.S. Instead, that expansion is now likely to occur in Europe or Asia, places where Shokrollahi can easily travel and where the environment is more welcoming.

On top of that, Shokrollahi’s visa just expired and he’s been waiting six weeks for a new one. That’s clearly not a priority for the new administration.

“I have to be pragmatic about my business and see where to grow it,” said Shokrollahi, in a telephone interview this week from Lausanne, Switzerland. “I feel that the U.S. is just not a stable country. I can’t really make long-term plans there.”
