Has the U.S. become the work forever society? According to a recent survey by Northwestern Mutual, a majority of Americans said they plan to work into their 60s and 70s, and some even into their 80s. Yet at the same time they indicate they intend to work longer, Americans are also unsure of their financial preparedness to actually fund their advanced lifespans.
Those findings came to light in Northwestern’s “2013 Planning & Progress Study,” which it conducted with Harris Interactive. About 1,500 Americans from age 25 and up were polled in an online survey in January.
