While industry studies have shown that 401(k) fees have declined in recent years—the Investment Company Institute recently issued a report saying they averaged 0.49% in 2016, down from 0.51% in 2015—America’s Best 401k says that data is only part of the story. As America’s Best 401k researchers note, fee data in the retirement industry is often based on the data that plan sponsors include on the Form 5500 that they file annually with regulators.
Given the fact that there have been reports that in the coming decades, many retirees could live in or near poverty, the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College decided to examine the prospects for late Gen-Xers, those born between 1976 and 1980, and early Millennials, those born between 1981 and 1990.
Workers in a new survey expect to live to a median of age 90, which could be why 53% expect to retire after age 65 or not at all, and 56% plan to continue working at least part-time in retirement, according to “Wishful Thinking or Within Reach: Three Generations Prepare for Retirement,” issued by the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies. Among those who say they expect to “work in retirement,” 83% say it is because of financial need, and another 75% say it is to remain active.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
