Women See Dimmer Prospects Than Men on Retirement, Jobs in Poll

Women voters, who are less confident they’ll have enough money in retirement and say they’ll have to work longer than many men expect to, are taking more steps to trim household budgets.

A Bloomberg National Poll conducted Oct. 7-10 finds that 41 percent of female likely voters are either very or fairly confident they will have enough money in retirement, compared with 48 percent of male likely voters. Thirty-two percent of these women are confident they won’t have to work beyond their target retirement age; 40 percent of men say the same.
