Retirement Confidence Survey

2024 Retirement Confidence Survey

The RCS is the longest-running survey of its kind, measuring worker and retiree confidence about retirement, and is conducted by the Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI) and Greenwald Research.

The 2024 survey of 2,521 Americans was conducted online January 2 through January 31, 2024. All respondents were ages 25 or older. The survey included 1,255 workers and 1,266 retirees – this year included an oversample of 721 completed surveys among military individuals (298 workers and 423 retirees).

Data were weighted by age, sex, military status, household income, and race/ethnicity. Unweighted sample sizes are noted on charts to provide information for margin of error estimates. The margin of error would be ± 2.8 percentage points for workers, ± 2.8 retirees, and ± 3.7 for military respondents in a similarly sized random sample.
