“More than a quarter of all workers say COVID has prompted them to move up their retirement date,” finds a survey released in February, by the National Institute for Retirement Security. One study even suggested that nearly 2 million older workers have left the labor force for good since the start of the pandemic.
The percentage of Americans who won’t be financially secure enough to maintain their pre-retirement standard of living has also increased, from 50% to 55%, according to the Center for Retirement Research.
Anxiety about these issues has been heightened by the pandemic. A survey by the National Institute for Retirement Security founds that more than half of Americans say that their concerns about being financially stable in retirement have increased this past year.
