Vanguard: 60 Percent of 401k Accounts Recovered

Wednesday, 02 Dec 2009 12:36 PM

 

DES MOINES, Iowa -- Another major provider of 401(k) accounts says the typical retirement saver now has more money in their account than they did before the stock market began tumbling two years ago.

The Vanguard Group Inc. said Wednesday that 60 percent of participants who continued to contribute and stayed invested have more money in their accounts than they had in September 2007, before the market decline.

That means 40 percent of continuous participants have lower balances, although Vanguard said most of them are less than 20 percent below their earlier peak value.

Vanguard looked at participant balances between September 2007 and September 2009, a period during which the market peaked in October 2007 and declined dramatically in 2008 and early 2009. The company has 1.7 million retirement account participants.
