When Will You Retire?

May 28, 2012 at 4:36 pm Leave a comment

The Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI) released their 2012 Retirement Confidence Survey.   The survey results regarding expectations are located on their web site at http://www.ebri.org/pdf/surveys/rcs/2012/fs-02-rcs-12-fs2-expect.pdf. What age do you plan to retire at?  Or do you plan to retire at all?  The survey found that only 37% of pre-retirees planned to retire after age 65.  With changes in life expectancies, would we expect this to be higher?   The survey has a noteworthy comment regarding 50% of retired survey respondents indicate that they have to retire earlier than expected in 2012.  Of that percentage, a large portion retired early due to health problems.
