The internet (most specifically, Twitter) was set ablaze this weekend. Financial website MarketWatch posted an article where experts said by the age 35, you should have twice your salary saved for retirement. Stop laughing, it isn’t that funny. Okay, maybe it is a little bit funny. Since that’s unrealistic for a lot of people, Twitter swiftly began reacting.
And who can blame them? While there were people agreeing, of course, many people were taking pleasure in telling the experts just how wrong they were.
By 35, in 2018, you might have to choose between retirement savings and health insurance, but sure @marketwatch, pretend we’re in 1988.— Moira B (@moidem) May 15, 2018
