Only 24% of US workers reported that they were very confident they’ll be able to retire in the lifestyle they want, according to a new study from the Trans America Center for Retirement Studies.
Demographic segments also have multiple implications for how people feel about retirement. In total, just under 35% of workers who have a household income of over $100,000, for example, are very confident about their future retirement, but that number drops all the way down to 14% for household incomes between $50,000 and $99,999.
Urban workers are more likely than rural and suburban workers to feel confident in their retirement abilities and those with full time positions are more confident that they’ll be able to retire at the age and lifestyle level they want. It becomes extremely important to consult with a knowledgeable estate planning lawyer about your individual goals and how they connect to your retirement strategy.
The support of a lawyer is instrumental in giving you the help to navigate through this process and increase your chances of a comprehensive planning strategy that adopts your retirement and estate planning goals.
