Couples’ Perceptions of Retirement & Financial Risk

Couples’ Perceptions of Retirement & Financial Risk

Does a shared lifetime guarantee shared views on retirement and financial planning? Financial decisions are rarely fully rational. Rather, they are dependent on the full context of one’s life, attitudes, and history. AgeLab research explores couples’ attitudes and emotions about financial risk using Perception Analyzer (link to unique tool and method page). We take this a step further to consider individuals’ immediate reactions via second-to-second responses to a video of a couple discussing lifestyle and financial decisions that may influence or impact retirement planning.
