Men and women express similar views about retirement, with both genders reporting retirement-plan changes in the past year and the expectation of working longer, according to a survey by the Employee Benefit Research Institute. Men and women share the desire of retiring at a median age of 65 and the sentiment that retirement savings of less than $250,000 will be adequate, EBRI found. While 83% of women said Social Security is likely to be a critical source of retirement income, 72% of men said the same, according to the survey. Ten percent of women and 17% of men said they're confident in being able to retire comfortably, the survey found.
