(OPEN):
61-PERCENT OF NEW-YORKERS WHO ARE 50 OR OLDER SAY THAT THEY'RE NOT CONFIDENT THAT THEIR CHILDREN'S GENERATION WILL BE BETTER OFF THAN THEIR OWN.  AND, SEVEN IN 10 ARE WORRIED ABOUT MAINTAINING THEIR FINANCES AND LIFESTYLE IN RETIREMENT.  THAT'S ACCORDING TO A RECENT STUDY FROM A-A-R-PSTATE-PRESIDENT, MARILYN PINSKY ["PIN-SKI"], HAS MORE...

(PINSKY):
"IN THE WAKE OF THE NATIONAL RECESSION, OLDER ADULTS DON'T HAVE WHAT THEY NEED TO ACCOMPLISH THEIR MOST-IMPORTANT GOALS--AND THAT'S DUE TO THE GROWING CONCERNS OVER HEALTH-CARE AND ECONOMIC-ISSUES.  WHILE MID-LIFE AND OLDER ADULTS WOULD PREFER TO ENJOY A SECURE RETIREMENT, THE REALITY SHOWS THAT THOSE DREAMS ARE BEING REPLACED BY REAL CONCERNS ABOUT HAVING ENOUGH MONEY TO RETIRE AND STAY HEALTHY.  IN FACT, 58-PERCENT OF WORKING OLDER NEW-YORKERS IN OUR SURVEY SAY THAT THEY WOULD DELAY THEIR RETIREMENT--IF THE ECONOMY DOESN'T IMPROVE--AND A SIZABLE NUMBER EXPECT NEVER TO RETIRE.
"

(CLOSE):
THE SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED IN JANUARY--AS PART OF AN A-A-R-P-INITIATIVE CALLED "VOICES OF 50-PLUS NEW YORK: DREAMS AND CHALLENGES".  TO REVIEW THE SURVEY, VISIT "A-A-R-P"-DOT-ORG-SLASH-"N-Y".
