2014 Sun Life Canadian Unretirement™ Index released

On February 19, we released our sixth annual Sun Life Canadian Unretirement™ Index, which has tracked how Canadians’ attitudes and expectations about retirement have evolved since the financial crisis began in 2008.

Our Bright Paper - Checkmate! Workplace savings plans help Canadians win in retirement. - highlights key findings of the survey with specific insights into how group retirement and savings plan members view their retirement. We cover:

  • expectations about the age for retirement and why they are changing;
  • concerns about what retirement will look like;
  • financial priorities - debt vs. retirement; and
  • steps that plan sponsors take to build confidence levels of their plan members.

Plan members are ahead of the game
For the sixth year in a row, the survey found that participating in a workplace savings plan gave plan members an emotional as well as financial edge over non-members.
