How Do Lower-Income Families Think about Retirement?
Helen Levy and Kristin S. Seefeldt
WP 2008-195

  • The great majority of low-income households think about retirement, although this does not necessarily mean they are able to plan and/or save actively for retirement.
  • Most respondents plan to retire as soon as they become eligible for Social Security or, in a few cases, private pensions.
