Many older workers say they’re counting on Social Security benefits to make up for lost retirement savings, but 77% worry that Social Security won’t be there for them when they do stop working.
When asked about priorities for President-elect Trump and the new Congress to help Americans become more financially secure, 58% of workers cited fully funding Social Security by implementing reforms to ensure that it can pay guaranteed benefits for future generations of retirees.
Transamerica’s report, “A Compendium of Findings About American Workers,” found that only 15% of workers are very confident they will be able to retire comfortably; 47% are somewhat confident.
Workers’ top three most frequently cited retirement fears are “outliving my savings/investments” (51%), followed by “Social Security will be reduced or cease to exist in the future” (47%) and “declining health that requires long-term care” (45%).
