Poll reveals the struggles of older Americans

The National Council on Aging has released the data from a Poll of seniors called the One Away Poll, to investigate how senior citizens have been coping with the economic downturn.

The results are about what we at NewRetirement have expected.  Some two thirds of respondents are either having a hard time making ends meet, or know someone their age who is.  One in three seniors derive 90% or more of their income from Social Security, a harrowing figure.
