The days of old when you were guaranteed a company-provided pension in exchange for your years of service are over. Combine this reality with an improved, but not completely recovered, housing market, increased health care costs and rising costs associated with day-to-day expenses, American workers are working hard for what they have, but is it enough? Are they feeling good about where they are financially and where they want to go as they look toward their eventual retirement?

LifeCare, the country’s leading provider of work/life balance services to tens of thousands of American companies, and the Financial Planning Association® (FPA®), the country’s leading member association for Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®) professionals, have joined forces to examine today’s American worker and how they are doing financially. The result is this 2015 LifeCare/FPA Financial Confidence of American Workers Survey.
