What, Me Worry?

What, Me Worry?

It seems that after decades of hard work one would be able to retire comfortably, but a new poll from the Employee Benefit Research Institute shows that only 18% of workers are confident that they will be able to do so, in sharp contrast to the 27% that felt that way at this time last year.

The good news, if you choose to see it, is that fear is a great motivator. The report also shows that more workers are actually taking the time to plan for retirement . Nearly 60% of workers who had a calculated retirement goal actually began saving or investing more. And most people still retire right around age 65, which still leaves plenty of time for enjoying all that savings!
