Nearly One-Quarter of Americans Never Plan on Retiring, According to New Poll

Nearly One-Quarter of Americans Never Plan on Retiring, According to New Poll The AP-NORC Center recently surveyed 1,423 adults about their plans for retirement, as well as their current financial health.

The poll found a significant disconnect between people’s retirement plans and the reality of aging in the workforce.

23 percent of workers reported that they didn’t expect to stop working, and about one-quarter of Americans believed they wouldn’t be retired by their 65th birthday.

When asked about the trend of staying in the workforce longer, those surveyed gave very mixed assessments.

39 percent of Americans think staying in the workforce positively affects their career, while 29 percent find it to be a negative thing.

However, remaining in the workforce may be unrealistic for many people that deal with unexpected illnesses or injuries.

Not only does a medical emergency prevent a person from working, they also cause significant financial damage because of pricey medical bills.
