Americans continue to have serious doubts about their retirement security, Associated Press reports.
Are you one of them?
The percentage of workers who said they’re “not at all” confident about having enough money for a comfortable retirement grew to 27 percent from 22 percent in 2010, according to an annual survey released Tuesday, AP writes.
That’s the highest level in the 21-year history of the Retirement Confidence Survey, conducted by the nonpartisan Employee Benefit Research Institute and market researcher Mathew Greenwald & Associates, AP reports.
All told, half of all workers seriously question whether they’ll have enough money for retirement, AP writes. That’s because another 23 percent said they are “not too confident” about whether their savings will be adequate.
Do you think you’ll have enough?
What is your game plan? Work longer? Save until it hurts — and then save some more? Hit the lottery (that hasn’t worked for me)?
