Retirement-age mothers and working-age daughters agree on many points, but they disagree about how long many of the daughters will work.
Researchers at the MetLife Mature Market Institute, Westport, Conn., an affiliate of MetLife Inc., New York, have published figures supporting that conclusion in a summary of a recent survey of 510 U.S. mothers and 757 U.S. daughters.
All participants had to be born between 1926 and 1977.
Participants born before 1945 had to have annual household incomes of $20,000, and participants born from 1946 to 1977 had to have incomes over $40,000.
The mothers and daughters interviewed shared many opinions about retirement.
