2012 AARP Survey of New York Registered Voters Age 50+ on Retirement Security

AARP commissioned a survey of registered voters age 50+ to gauge their opinions on the economy, health, retirement security and to assess whether they feel they are receiving adequate information from their Congressional candidates on their plans to strengthen retirement programs. 

Results of these surveys show: 

  • There is considerable concern about retirement security among this population.
  • Nearly all respondents agree that Medicare and Social Security are critical to seniors, yet most are not confident these programs will be there in the future.

  • The majority of respondents feel that candidates for Congress have not done a good job at explaining their plans for strengthening Medicare and Social Security.

This telephone survey of New York registered voters age 50+ was fielded September 7 to September 18, 2012.  A total of 399 interviews were completed in New York Congressional Districts 1, 21, 24 and 27 yielding a margin of error of +4.9 percent.

For more information about these survey results, contact Kate Bridges at (202) 434-6329.
