What's Your Nest Egg Score?

Contributed by mm | October 8, 2007 5:16 AM PST

As I am doing my regular web surfing of personal finance news, I bumped into A.G. Edwards's site and particularly its Nest Egg Score section. A.G. Edwards labels the Nest Egg Score as "a comprehensive indicator of how well U.S. households are doing at building personal wealth."

With its online Nest Egg Score Estimator, A.G. Edwards will supply your individual score after you answer 14 quick questions. It only took me 3 minutes to finish the questionnaire, and here is what I got:

Your estimated score of 786 gives you a Nest Egg Score ranking of Excellent, which means you've done an outstanding job of building your nest egg up to this point in your life. Now you may want to focus on developing strategies for continuing to build and preserve your wealth, protecting it from unexpected costs (such as long-term health care or a disability), and providing for heirs in the event something happens to you.

The scoring system mimics the credit score system, in which you are assigned a number between 450 to 850. Unlike credit score though, the Nest Egg Score is free, and you can get your score any time from the site. A.G. Edward also reported that the National Nest Egg Score is 649 for the 3rd quarter, which is 12 points higher than that of the 2nd quarter.

Well, it is not especially surprising that our household is doing better than the average U.S. family in preparing for our retirement. But if you are not sure how you stack up in your wealth building process, this Estimator is a good place to start.

Like your site, but this was LAME. The response it gave was so generic, it was useless. Must be a product placement.


Kash Commented on October 8, 2007

Agree with Ed - Lately I feel MMM has been adding post just for the sake of adding posts. Lacks meaningful substance. I loved the site but slowly I am getting disappointed.


jack ob Commented on October 8, 2007

Can anyone suggest software that lets you keep track of your assests/stocks like mm? thanks. that may be better that filling out AGE's form.


Creative Investor Commented on October 8, 2007

Come on guys, just because you didn't find the Nest Egg widget useful it doesn't mean that it's useless. There are plenty of people out there who want to see where they stand and this thing might give them an idea.

As far as MM's posts go, I think they're just less frequent than most people are used to. Personally, I still find this site and his posts motivating and, as cheesy as it may sound, inspirational. Criticism is great, but you don't have to rip on him. Just a thought.


Creative Investor Commented on October 8, 2007

jack ob: Well, I think MM said that he's using an Excel spreadsheet he himself has created. You can do samething with a spreadsheet or you can use Quicken, which is great, but not free.


GS Commented on October 8, 2007

I was curious, but the results were "lame". It gave me the EXACT SAME score whether I entered my household net worth as "$0" or "more than $1,000,000" in question #13. I'm not sure how that works.

By the way... I like the site. Just commenting on AG Edwards' tool.


Juan22 Commented on November 6, 2007

That is an interesting find. I found the same results, looks like they need to do a little more work with it.
