Approximately 56.7 percent of early baby boomers, 58.5 percent of late boomers, and just under 58 percent of gen Xers are projected to not run short of money in retirement, according to an updated analysis of the EBRI's Retirement Readiness Ratings (RRRs).

Those results are somewhat higher than EBRI's 2013 analysis, based on changes in the market value of defined contribution and individual retirement account (IRA) assets, as well as the increase in housing values during that period.

The RRRs increased by1.6 percentage points, from 55.1, for the Early Boomers; by 1.0 percentage points, from 57.5 percent, for Late Boomers; and by 0.5 percentage points, from 57.2 percent, for Gen Xers.
