57% of Americans Expect a Comfortable Retirement

Wait, what?

Americans believe in large numbers that their retirements are going to be just fine:

• 15-year high 57% of non-retirees anticipate comfortable retirement;
• 57% of retirees rely on Social Security as major source of income;
• 33% of non-retirees expect to rely on Social Security as major source;

It is shocking to see that so many people hold such unrealistic expectations about what their retirements are going to be like . . .
