Retirement Poll

Poll: Millions of working Americans uneasy about retirement plans

A new Associated Press-Ipsos poll shows a lot of working Americans are worried about how they'll afford retirement.

Almost half of the people still working don't think they're doing a good job of getting ready to retire. Many say they doubt whether they will have the money it will take to retire comfortably. Fifty-five percent of those polled oppose President Bush's plan to allow workers to create personal retirement accounts. The poll shows support for personal accounts is higher among young adults and declines steadily as people get older. It also says about two-thirds of current workers plan to keep working after they've retired, and ten percent say they'll retire at 71 or older -- if they retire at all.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.
