Oklahoma voters strongly support a retirement savings program, and most agree that elected officials in the state should support legislation that helps workers save for retirement, according to a recent AARP survey.
- Oklahoma registered voters believe retirement savings are important, and they are concerned that increases in their cost of living expenses will reduce their standard of living in retirement.
- Nearly a quarter of registered Oklahoma voters said that their employer does not offer a retirement savings plan.
- About seven in ten registered voters say they feel anxious about having enough money to live comfortably in retirement, and most wish they had more money saved.
- When they think about the coronavirus pandemic, almost three in five are worried about their current and long-term financial situation.
Interviews were conducted November 6–16, 2020. The sample of 600 registered voters ages 25–64 was drawn from a registered voter list. Interviews were conducted via landline phone and cell phone. All data are weighted by age, gender, and race/ethnicity according to the November 2020 Oklahoma state voter database statistics.
