Survey charts
AARP Utah unveiled a statewide survey that showed a growing concern over retirement savings in the state.  The survey, Making Retirement a Reality:  Helping Utahns Age 25-64 Save and Take Control of Their Future, engaged 1,000 Utahns age 25-64 and found that 85 percent wish they were able to save more money for retirement and 77 percent support the idea of a state-created retirement plan for those who lack access at their place of work.  One in six of those surveyed has less than $5000 in savings. Currently in Utah, 53 percent of private sector workers [1] – and 21 percent of those surveyed -- do not have access to a retirement savings plan at their place of work.  The results were presented during AARP Utah’s Democracy Day event at the Utah State Capitol on February 12.
