How Confident Are You About Retirement?

May 25, 2012 at 8:37 am Leave a comment

The Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI) released their 2012 Retirement Confidence Survey.   The confidence results are located on their web site at http://www.ebri.org/pdf/surveys/rcs/2012/fs-01-rcs-12-fs1-conf.pdf.   Prior to 2008, pre-retirees who were very confident that they would have enough funds were in the 23-27% range.   For 2012, the very confident are at 14%.  Confidence has remained low since 2008, demonstrating a lack of optimism since the stock market crash.  Will this confidence likely turn around soon?   Also, it is noteworthy that the EBRI survey indicates the high correlation between debt and confidence levels.
