Retirement Hopes, Plans, and Realities Across Three Generations

For the past 20 years, Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies (TCRS) has surveyed U.S. workers about their attitudes towards retirement. TCRS's most recent survey (Survey), conducted by the Harris Poll between August 9 and October 28, 2017 via an online survey of 6,372 representative workers across the U.S., reveals both similarities and differences in retirement views across three generations: Millennials (born 1979-2000), Generation Xers (born 1965-1978), and Baby Boomers (born 1946-1964).
