About the index

Lincoln Financial Group has teamed up with CivicScience to bring you the Consumer Retirement Index, calculated from monthly tracking questions that assess consumer sentiment about saving for retirement. The index is based on three questions, each of which measures an aspect of consumer confidence about retirement. It represents the percentage of U.S. adults ages 18-64 who feel "very" or "extremely" confident about all three of these measures:

  • Being able to accumulate enough money so they can retire when they want
  • Being able to convert their savings when they retire into income that will last the rest of their lives
  • Having enough money to maintain the lifestyles they want in retirement
