America is facing a looming retirement savings crisis and future generations will have a lower standard of living due to financial insecurity. Today, many average working households have virtually no retirement savings and for many the increased burden of debt is a reality. To help address this savings shortfall, AARP and the Ad Council launched the Saving for Retirement campaign to empower people to take control of their financial futures. This is a particularly important issue for African-Americans, where 33 percent of the population have less than one month of funds saved for a crisis. The newest iteration of the Saving for Retirement campaign, “Tribute to Our Sheroes,” celebrates everything Black women do for their loved ones and empowers them to take charge of their future with free, personalized tips to help boost their retirement savings so they can live comfortable, happy lives as they age.
According to the US Census Bureau, more than 37 million adults ages 16 and above do not have a high school diploma.

Many must work multiple jobs to support their families--and without a GED® diploma, they tend to get the lowest paid and least stable jobs.
