ComPsych Corp. has found evidence that consumers may be less worried about health care costs and retirement planning than they are about other financial issues.
ComPsych, Chicago, an employee assistant program company, recently commissioned a poll of U.S. workers.
Only 8% of the workers said they are “not worried.”
When researchers gave workers a list of worries and asked them to say which one was the biggest concern, 30% named the cost of living; 29%, credit card debt; and 14%, mortgage payments.
Only 13% listed retirement accounts, and only 3% listed health care costs.
