50 Things I learned about retirement - #3

Posted Feb 11 2011 12:22am

100 things Couples don't always talk to each other about retirement.  For example, a survey of 502 married couples approaching retirement uncovered the fact that wives and husbands often had different understandings of their plans and preparations for life after retirement and found that:

  • 61% disagreed on which income source (savings, pensions, Social Security, etc.) would be their primary source of funds in retirement
  • 58% disagreed about whom their spouse would turn to for financial guidance in the event of the other spouse's death
  • 41% disagreed about whether at least one partner would work in retirement
  • 39% differed on the amount of their life insurance/assurance coverage
