New numbers out on retirement planning and they don't look good for many.
According to a new Bankrate.com report, nearly a third of all Americans have not saved any money for retirement. That's 69-percent of 18-to-29 year-olds, 33-percent of 30-to-49 year-olds and 26-percent of 50-to-65 year-olds.
The bright spot in the report, those who are saving are starting at an earlier age.
Financial experts say regardless of your age, it's never too late to start saving for those golden years.
