Study find savers are healthier
Saving for retirement pays back with your health. At least that’s what a study out of Washington University found. Workers who save for retirement evidently feel they have a stake in staying alive to enjoy it. The result, if you’re saving for retirement, you’re probably taking better care of your health. Researchers found that if you had a 401(k) plan, you likely paid better attention to lab results and did something to improve them. Of course, it may not be a causal relationship. It could be that those people predisposed to saving for retirement are naturally the sort of people who care about their health, and are conscientious in other ways. Here’s the story. So, what do you think? Are you the sort of person who naturally did all the things you were supposed to do including saving for retirement or the type that saved for retirement despite a desire to bungee jump off a bridge in Australia?
