1The T. Rowe Price Retirement Savings and Spending Study (RSS) is an annual study that has been conducted online since 2014. The study annually surveys approximately 3,000–4,000 participants who are currently contributing to a 401(k) plan or are eligible to contribute and have a balance of at least $1,000. The survey also includes an additional 1,000–1,500 retirees who have retired with a Rollover IRA or left‑in‑plan balance. The study investigates saving attitudes and behaviors of plan participants and retirees. The 2021 RSS was conducted between June 9, 2021, and August 4, 2021, and included 3,844 plan participants and 1,332 retirees. The 2022 RSS was conducted between June 24, 2022, and July 22, 2022, and included 3,895 plan participants and 1,136 retirees.
