The AARP 2018 Wyoming Retirement Security Survey gauged the support of 508 registered Wyoming voters age 25–64 for a state retirement savings program. The survey found that most voters would support the program and agree that legislators should support it as well.

Key findings:

  • Over half (54%) of all Wyoming voters surveyed feel anxious about having enough money to live comfortably through their retirement years.
  • Most (73%) support a private-public managed state retirement savings option and agree (81%) that Wyoming lawmakers should support legislation that makes it easier for workers to save for retirement.
  • One in five (19%) Wyoming registered voters say they are not offered a retirement savings option at work.

Interviews were conducted June 21–July 2, 2018. The sample was drawn from a registered voter list. Half (51%) of the interviews were conducted via landline phone and half (49%) via cell phone. All data are weighted by age and gender according to June 2018 Wyoming voter database statistics. For more information, contact Jennifer Sauer at For media inquiries, contact
