Oregonians and Retirement Worries

Yesterday, the Statesman Journal published a story with findings from a survey of 500 Oregonians. The survey, conducted by Wells Fargo, found that 40 percent of respondents live paycheck to paycheck. Less than half (roughly 40%) of non-retired Oregon residents indicated that they had a detailed savings plan for retirement. Retirement savings showed to be the top financial concern for Oregonians, followed by health care costs, and paying the bills each month.

The survey results did provide at least two bits of good news. Most (60%) Oregonians surveyed felt confident about the security of their jobs. In addition, more than half of respondents said they were better off financially now than three years ago.

More details are available in the full article from the Statesman Journal.
