Where will your retirement money come from?

One survey shows there’s an alarming difference between perception and reality. Only 33% of today’s workers expect social security will be a major source of retirement income but 70% of retirees report that it is. That may not be enough since social security paid retired workers an average monthly benefit of just over $1200.

There’s more, 42% of workers expect employers sponsored retirement plans to play a big role. Yet, only 20% of those retired report that it actually does.

Today’s workers also have high expectations for their IRAs, 27% believe their IRA will be a major source of income but only 13% of retirees say it is. Seventy-five percent of today’s workers expect to keep working after they retire. In reality only 22% of retirees remain on the job.
