Survey Finds Women Working During Retirement

Based on a survey sponsored by the General Financial Group/VALIC, more than 65 percent of respondents indicate that women will continue working while enjoying retirement.

Known as the 2000 Women's Retirement Confidence Survey, the 65 percent increase also reflects a eight percent increase over 1998 figures.

Why the continued desire to work? Consider these responses:

  • Women enjoy working and want to stay involved,
  • Additional spending money,
  • The ability to maintain medical insurance and other benefits programs, and
  • They will have money to make ends meet.

The survey also found that an overwhelming 70 percent of working women were confident that they have put enough money away to live comfortably.
