A Compendium of Findings About the Retirement Outlook of U.S. Workers

A Compendium of Findings About the Retirement Outlook of U.S. Workers (“Compendium”), a collaboration between nonprofit Transamerica Institute® and its Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies® (TCRS), explores the health, employment, and finances of workers amid the COVID-19 pandemic. It offers 35 key indicators of retirement readiness by employment status, work arrangements, urbanicity, household income, race/ethnicity, LGBTQ+, and caregiver status.
As part of the 21st Annual Transamerica Retirement Survey of Workers, the Compendium is based on a survey of employed workers conducted in late 2020. It is a follow-up report to Living in the COVID-19 Pandemic: The Health, Finances, and Retirement Prospects of Four Generations and Life in the COVID-19 Pandemic: Women’s Health, Finances, and Retirement Outlook.
The Compendium explores retirement readiness by employment status and offers comparisons of full-time and part-time workers. In general, full-time workers are more confident and engaged in saving and preparing for retirement than part-time workers. A structural contributing factor is full-time workers are more likely to be offered retirement benefits from their employers. Amid the pandemic, part-time workers are more likely to have experienced negative impacts to their employment which can be disruptive to their ability to save for retirement.
