Sweating Retirement? Your Peers May Not Be

Consumers appear to be keyed into several issues that could impact their retirement readiness. According to the index survey, a significant percentage of respondents note that candidate positions on the following issues are likely to influence their vote.

  • Social Security: 55 percent
  • Taxes: 53 percent
  • Medicare: 52 percent
  • Unemployment: 41 percent

Concerns regarding these issues likely parallel the uneasiness many consumers feel about their own ability to retire.
