HOW LONG DO YOU EXPECT TO WORK?  A RECENT STUDY BY NORTHWESTERN MUTUAL FOUND THAT ONE-IN-THREE AMERICANS EXPECT TO WORK INTO THEIR 70'S--AND ONE-IN-10 SAY THAT THEY'LL WORK PAST AGE-80.  PART OF THAT MAY BE BY CHOICE--BUT THE STUDY SHOWS STRONG EVIDENCE THAT RETIREMENT IS BEING DELAYED OUT OF NECESSITY.  ACCORDING TO THE SURVEY, 56-PERCENT OF AMERICANS SAY THAT THEY'RE FINANCIALLY PREPARED TO LIVE TO AGE-75--BASED ON THEIR CURRENT-SITUATION AND LONG-TERM PLANS.  THAT NUMBER DROPS TO 44-PERCENT OF THOSE WHO SAY THAT THEY'RE PREPARED TO LIVE TO AGE-85--WHILE ONLY 35-PERCENT SAY THAT THEY'RE PREPARED TO LIVE TO AGE-95.  IT MAY BE A POWERFUL ILLUSTRATION OF HOW FAR BEHIND PEOPLE ARE FEELING--AND A CAUTIONARY TALE FOR ALL OF US.  NO MATTER WHAT YOUR CURRENT-SITUATION IS, IT'S CRITICAL TO HAVE A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN IN PLACE, TO ACHIEVE LONG-TERM FINANCIAL-SECURITY.  FOR MORE INFORMATION ON YOUR ROADMAP TO RETIREMENT, VISIT "NORTHWESTERN-MUTUAL"-DOT-COM.
