There is a worryingly large number of people who are ‘not sure at all’ what their retirement will look like, a Lifetime poll has indicated.
The poll, carried out for a week across our Twitter and Linkedin social media platforms, was titled ‘Are you confident about your retirement?’.
There were two options: ‘yes, I’ve got it mapped out’ and ‘no, unsure how it will pan out’.
On Twitter 81% of people who took part in the poll went for the ‘no’ option, with just 19% saying they have their retirement plans well under control.
On Linkedin, the gap was slightly narrower but still a big majority for the ‘unsure’ side, with 73% going for ‘no’ and 27% saying they had their retirement all mapped out.
The results emphasised once again that there is a tremendous need for professional financial advice and assistance in this area.
People clearly need help in putting a financial plan in place that will bring their hopes for their retirement into much clearer focus.
At Lifetime we have put together an innovative digital service that offers a pathway for people to take control of their finances and make better informed money choices. Retirement planning forms a key part of our service.
