The survey sample included 650 adults self-identified as “non-retired” and 322 as “retired.”Only 5% of non-retired Americans reported that they had already reached their retirement goals.The study finds that this lack of overall confidence tracks with anxiety about the financial aspects of retirement – with two-in-five non-retired Americans (42%) saying they are either very anxious (14%) or somewhat anxious (29%).last_img
