The LIMRA Secure Retirement Institute found in an early 2017 survey that six in 10 retirees who said their basic living expenses were significantly higher than expected weren’t confident they could enjoy the lifestyles they’d planned.

In the same survey, about seven in 10 with a formal written plan say discretionary expenses are about the same as expected, while half of retirees without any plan said the same.
