Aug 8, 2023 | Political News

Americans increasingly expect their financial situation will never permit them to retire.

In a recent Axios/Ipsos survey, 20% of Americans agreed that “I don't think I will ever retire.” Of those over age 65, that figure stood at 33%.

Seventy percent of those who feel that they won't be able to retire expressed that sentiment because they don't think they will be able to afford to do so. Roughly 19% said they would not retire out of a desire to continue working.
