Bankers Life and Casualty Company Center for a Secure Retirement surveyed middle-income retirees on the realities of preparing for and enjoying life in retirement.
In this new multi-part report series, we asked 300 retirees ages 55 to 75 a variety of open-ended questions about what they have learned during their retirement and to share their real-world advice. Retirees weighed in with their perspective on life in retirement and what they miss most and least about their pre-retirement lifestyles.
Part 3: Living in Retirement highlights four questions from the survey and summarizes retirees’ most common responses.
