Study: Retiring at 70 May Still Be Too Soon

Research from the nonprofit Employee Benefits Research Institute throws cold water on the notion that working until age 70 will set most Americans up for adequate retirement income.

Jack VanDerhei, research director at E.B.R.I., says some studies have suggested that by working to age 70 ó five years past the traditional retirement age of 65 ó nearly 80 percent of pre-retirees, including lower-income Americans, could have adequate retirement income.

But such models, he said, donít fully take into account changes in the retirement system, such as the shift away from pension plans and toward 401(k) accounts, or the potential for a catastrophic health event that would require a stay in a nursing home.

When those factors are accounted for, he said, the outlook is less optimistic, especially for lower-income workers. E.B.R.I.ís analytical model, he said, indicates that for those in the lowest quarter of incomes, workers would have to toil until age 84 before 90 percent of them would have at least a break-even chance for success.

That doesnít mean, he said, that he is advocating that everyone work until their 80s, or that working that long is feasible. But it does suggest, he said, that it is a risky notion to think that you can work until youíre 65 and then simply work five more years if you donít havenít saved enough.

If a couple near retirement age has one member who become ill and requires a lengthy nursing home stay, he said, a good chunk of their savings may be exhausted. ďHow can you ignore that?Ē he said.

Itís much less of a gamble, he said, to save more while youíre working, if you can: ďItís much less risky than waiting until youíre 65 or 67 and seeing what happens.Ē

How long do you plan on working?
