How US Consumers Research Retirement
Many Sources Are Used, But Financial Advisors Are Considered Most Helpful
April 28, 2009
Why Read This Report
Less than half of US online adults have done retirement research. Consumers who are worried about having enough money to retire are less likely to have done research; investors and older consumers are more likely to have done retirement planning. Books, newspapers, magazines, and Web sites are the most commonly used resources. But financial advisors — independents, as well as those employed by full-service brokerages — are considered the most helpful resources. Investment firms' Web sites are considered more helpful than life insurance agents and print or online media.
