The U.S. retirement market was valued at $27.2 trillion at the end of the third quarter this year (2019), according to the Investment Company Institute.
Q: How much U.S. currency is in circulation?

U.S. Population = 329,217,343

Estimated $5,315.63 per capita in circulation (2020)

Your odds of cashing out are slim to none.

But the joke is that even if you got it all out, it's entirely worthless notes (federal reserve notes). When (not if) that system implodes for whatever reason, billionaires become zero-aires overnight. Remember, notes are debt - they are not fiat. And if you are an obligated party on those notes (via FICA), the creditor has a legal claim upon your labor and property.

I can't predict how "Muricans" will take the news when the creditor's goons start "collections" but preppers take heed.

"Investments" in land, housing, tools, food, and fuel will be of real value. But if you're in debt, it may be a repeat of the Great Depression, where many folks lost everything to the banks (usurers).
