More Americans spent less time in the last year planning for an investment for their retirement years than choosing a restaurant, flat screen TV or tablet, according to an annual
survey by TIAA-CREF, a financial services provider.
The survey polled a sample of 1,008 adults nationwide in February 2014 on their behaviors regarding individual retirement accounts (IRAs).

401(k) Matches Left on Table
Sixty percent of those who are contributing to an IRA also have an employer-sponsored plan such as a 401(k) or 403(b). Among those with both plans, more than half (53 percent) say they contribute to their IRA regardless of whether they have reached the contribution or matching limit of their employer-sponsored plan. This means they could be leaving money on the table if they are diverting money to their IRA before contributing enough to get their employer match.
