Michigan Voters Support Retirement Savings Option​​

Most also agree that state legislators should enable workers to save for retirement.

This AARP survey explored the opinions of registered Michigan voters on retirement saving issues. One in six registered voters said that their employer does not offer a retirement savings plan. Data from this survey found strong support among Michigan voters for a state retirement savings program and most agree that policymakers should make it easier for workers to save for retirement.

Three in five of all registered voters say they feel anxious about having enough money to live comfortably in retirement, and most wish they had more money saved for retirement.  Michigan registered voters believe retirement savings is important, and they are concerned that some residents may have inadequate savings and could end up relying on public assistance programs.  


Interviews were conducted between May 7–25, 2021. The sample of 616 registered voters ages 25–64 was drawn from a registered voter list. Interviews were conducted via landline and cell phone. All data are weighted by age, gender, and race/ethnicity according to the May 2021 Michigan state voter database statistics.
