Many baby boomers are approaching retirement and many are likely evaluating their preparedness for retirement. One way to measure how prepared individuals are is to look at objective measures such as financial ratios. Another important measure is individuals’ subjective view of their financial wellness. In other words, how do they feel about their preparation, or lack of preparation, for retirement? The goal of this research is to determine if individuals’ subjective views of their personal finances align with various objective measures. If they do align, how could practitioners help those who have poor subjective views and objective measures? If they don’t align, how could practitioners help their clients deal with this disconnect?
