The 2010 Retirement Confidence Survey, the 20th annual wave of this survey, finds that the record-low confidence levels measured during the past two years of economic decline appear to have bottomed out. The percentage of workers very confident about having enough money for a comfortable retirement has stabilised at 16%, which is statistically equivalent to the 20-year low of 13% measured in 2009. Retiree confidence about having a financially secure retirement has also stabilised, with 19% saying now they are very confident (statistically equivalent to the 20% measured in 2009). Worker confidence about paying for basic expenses in retirement has rebounded slightly, with 29% now saying they are very confident about having enough money to pay for basic expenses during retirement (up from 25% in 2009, but still down from 34% in 2008).
