People working in higher education are concerned about retirement but few are changing their investment strategy or planned retirement date or seeking the help of a financial adviser, ING U.S. Retirement Services found in a survey conducted in conjunction with Synovate.
Sixty-two percent said they are less confident about living comfortably in retirement than they were before the market decline of 2008. Nonetheless, 63% do not expect to delay their retirement, and 40% have never changed their retirement plan investment mix. Of this group, 28% didn’t make a change in the past year. Only 55% have ever sought the help of a financial adviser.
