Simply put, net worth illustrates the amount in cash you would have left over after selling all of your assets to pay your liabilities, providing a measure of your overall financial health and stability. Your net worth can either be negative or positive.

What Is Net Worth?

Your net worth is an equation: every significant thing you own (assets)
minus what you owe (your debts and other liabilities).

Why Knowing Your Net Worth Matters

Compare yourself to others - track your progress as compared to the average net worth for your age or income bracket.

Median U.S. Household Net Worth

As shown in this chart, the median U.S. household net worth is not sufficient for most investors to realize a comfortable retirement. Net worth peaks at retirement age for those 65+ since house and property values may account for the majority of the net worth calculation. For younger age brackets, net worth is impacted by holding significant debt such as a mortgage and student loans, along with lower salaries and assets, but over time these investments may result in higher net worth households.
