Retirement Expectations Changing


Survey Savvy
ore than three-quarters (77%) of American workers expect to keep doing some kind of work for pay after they retire, a new Pew Research study found—and most of them (60%) are more interested in keeping busy than in the pay. As for those already retired, they are less enamored of the workaday life; only 12% said they now have a paying job.The disparity highlights the fact that attitudes about retirement are in transition, the authors noted. The demographic of older Americans is changing as well: Retirees will comprise 21% of the population in 2050, up from 12% in 2000.
