Most Workers Will Likely Need to Work Longer or Save More to Meet their Financial Needs in Retirement A new analysis from Aon Hewitt, the global talent, retirement and health solutions business of Aon plc, reveals that most workers will likely be working longer to save enough to maintain their standard of living in retirement. Aon Hewitt’s analysis of 77 large U.S. employers, representing 2.1 million employees, projects the average worker will need to save 11 times their final pay at retirement (age 65) to keep their preretirement lifestyle. Exact income replacement depends on the unique situation of each worker including age, income, anticipated retirement age and Social Security. Aon Hewitt finds most workers are coming up short when it comes to preparing for retirement. Only one-in-five are on track to meet or exceed their needs in retirement at age 65.

Aon Hewitt projects that age 68 is the median age U.S. workers will be able to retire with sound financial security, while 16 percent are not expected to have …
