Since the Great Recession ended, a higher percentage of employees work for employers that offer retirement plans and a higher percentage of them are participating in the plans, according to a report by the nonpartisanResearch Institute.
In 2012, 61% of all workers age 16 or older worked for an employer or union that sponsored a pension or retirement plan for any of its employees—up from 59% in 2009.
In addition, workers participating in a retirement plan increased to 46% in 2012, up slightly from 2009 (45%) but below the level measured in 2003 (48%).
