According to a survey by CareerBuilder, some mature workers are feeling more comfortable about retiring now compared to last year at this time, with 65% of workers age 60 and over saying they are putting off retirement because they can’t afford to retire financially, down from 72% last year.

In addition, the survey of 500 U.S. workers found that 28% of these mature workers plan to retire within the next two years, while 27% percent are planning to retire in three to four years, 18% in the next five to six years, and 16% in seven years or more. About 10% say they don’t think they’ll ever be able to retire.
