If you’re worried about saving enough for retirement, you’ve got company all over the world.
A new survey shows that even workers in countries with strong social safety nets fret over their financial futures. ING surveyed almost 15,000 people in Europe, the U.S. and Australia, and found the majority worry whether they’ll have enough money in retirement.
Those with the gloomiest outlooks are in Spain and France, where more than two out of three people said they’re concerned. The most optimistic about their retirement prospects are the Dutch. In the U.S., 62 percent of respondents said they worried about having enough to retire on.
While the Dutch have the brightest outlook on retirement, they’re also planning to delay retirement the longest. The average respondent in the Netherlands expects to retire at almost 67 years old.
