Generation X doesn’t get a lot of press, falling as it does between two much larger generations—boomers and Millennials. It’s a shame because at least in terms of retirement saving the youngest folks in this group are doing a lot of things well.
Gen X comprises those born between 1964 and the early 1980s. So they are around 30 to 48 years old. Compared to all other age groups, folks in their 30s are easily the most aware of what it takes to build a nest egg, Wells Fargo found in its latest middle class retirement study.
