AARP released the results of their "You've Earned a Say" survey on how to protect Social Security and Medicare.
Nebraskans were given several opportunities over the past several months to voice their concerns and complete a questionnaire regarding the future of those two programs. Nebraska AARP spokesperson Devorah Lanner says 3,000 Nebraskans took part and she says the results mirrored national results.
The poll found that 47% of voter’s age 50-plus is not confident that they'll ever be able to retire and 67% believe the recent economic downturn will force them to rely even more on Social Security and Medicare.
