Confronting Retirement Planning
When it comes to envisioning their retirement futures, most Americans would rather not.
On Monday, the Alliance for Lifetime Income, a consortium of annuity providers, sent me the summary of a new survey, on “Retirement Income Anxieties.” The material was under embargo until 12:01 this morning, which was touching. They trusted me! (Without reason, since I had not previously heard of this organization.)
Resisting the temptation was not difficult, as the survey contained no grave secrets. It was, however, instructive. The findings not only identified retirement trouble spots--the Alliance’s goal, since it wishes to issue a call to action--but also some encouraging pockets.
