TCRS Annual Retirement Survey

The Transamerica Annual Retirement Survey is now in its 20th year. The survey comprises research among nationally representative samples of American workers and employers, and is designed to explore attitudes and behaviors regarding retirement security and benefits. It is one of the largest and longest-running of its kind and is conducted through an independent research firm. TCRS reports include in-depth segmentation and comparison analysis of workers based on employment status (full-time/part-time), gender, generation, household income, education and race/ethnicity. Findings of employers are examined by company size and include comparisons to workers by company size.
