US Ranked 19th for Retirement Security
The United States has ranked 19th among 150 countries listed by retirement security, behind many Eastern and Western European countries, according to Natixis Global Asset Management firm.
The firm, headquartered in Boston and Paris, released its first Global Retirement Index on Thursday, measuring how well retired people live based on health measures, income levels, a country’s financial state and quality of life. The analysis used data from the World Bank and United Nations.
The U.S. finished with a final score of 74 percent. The top ranking went to Norway, which had an 87 percent score, according to Natixis. The company said the U.S. ranks 23rd by health measurements, with the world’s highest per-capita health spending, but lags behind other nations in its access to care and life expectancy.
