A new poll finds nearly 1 out of 5 individuals plan to work until death.
The survey, conducted by Bankrate Inc., New York, also found 28% of those surveyed save less than 5% of their gross pay a year, with 16% saving nothing at all for retirement.
Even so, optimism about life in retirement remains high. Around 60% said they “never worry” or worry “not very much” about outliving their retirement savings.
Nearly 40% of those aged 65 and up say they plan on working until they die, and 21% of those between the ages of 35 and 64 declare they’ll work forever, too.
