Listen To The Story

Gather round friends, it is time for a story about millennials! Yes, we know, the very thought of this is enough to arouse anger across generations. Many baby boomers and Generation Xers are sick of hearing about this much-hyped generation. And millennials are fed up with the various stereotypes and misconceptions out there. We’ve got folks from each of these generations working here at Marketplace, which is why a recent survey about retirement savings caught our eye, in that it painted a rather different picture of millennials than the typical clichés.

Use the audio player above to hear findings that might surprise you, with insights from financial planning experts from each of these generations.
