Data from a newly released Harris Poll of more than 1,000 U.S. workers suggests that a majority of pre-retirees might answer "yes" to that question. Sixty-six percent of respondents to the poll identified their financial health as a component of their overall well-being. In fact, financial health ranked up near physical health (74%) and mental health (70%). Fifty-seven percent of those polled saw a relationship between all three factors, holding the opinion that their money, their lifestyle, and their health were integrated holistically, with each factor impacting another.
Interestingly, 75% of those polled reported that their financial goals and strategies had changed within the last five years. Three-quarters of the respondents also said that they were striving for "financial independence" as well as retirement. Eighty-two percent of the 1,007 respondents said they believed there is no "single path" or cookie-cutter strategy toward retirement, and 88% believed that retirement looks different for everyone. Eighty percent felt that the traditional idea of a work-free retirement has become obsolete, and 56% felt that their financial future would differ from their parents and their children.1,2
