Americans are staying in the workforce longer
Americans are staying in the workforce longer than ever, according to a new Gallup poll. In the survey, 62 was the average age of retirement for respondents who’d already retired. That’s the oldest age reported since the pollster began asking that question in 1991. Meanwhile, the average age of nonretired respondents is 66 years old, which is down one year from a high recorded in 2012. Here are the answers, by age, from nonretired respondents who were asked when they expected to retire.
|Under 55||55 to 59||60 to 64||65||Over 65|
|18- to 29-year-olds||11%||4%||15%||26%||36%|
|30- to 49-year-olds||3%||7%||19%||33%||29%|
|50- to 64-year-olds||1%||5%||23%||18%||40%|
