Do you worry about the future and how well you will be able to live when you get older? ... For me I worry I won't have enough saved and I worry that I will not be able to afford to stop workung . I also worry about health in general.

My Husband and myself Retired about four years ago,about the best thing I ever done for myself and my Husband.No more getting up early in the mornings and try to get to work in snow storms,no more having to go to work on Beautiful summer days,when all you want to do is stay home.I was worried also before retiring, if we had enough to live on,was our pensions good enough with our OAS to make ends meet and save a little besides.We had already prepared in case anything happened to one of us or both while we were working and put some away for emergency purposes.Now,we don't have to worry just enjoy each other,no sense in us worrying,life is too short I say.

I worry too. Especially since I don't have a pension. A lot of people don't so unless you save yourself the future can look scary.

I had shoulder surgery in October and hoping to get back to work. I need to work 3 more years from July to get full pension. I can't go any sooner the money just isn't there. I worry all the time I need to start getting better and it isn't happening. I have been off since last May when I hurt myself at work. It's been a very long road and not seeing any end. Gets very depressing at times

I feel like I'm going to have to work forever. And I have a decent job. There just never seems to be enough to save at the end of the pay cheque.

I do have an RRSP through work, so it comes off automatically without me noticing. I find that's the most effective way for me to save.

My dad had a good job. He still makes more than me a year retired than I do working. And he lets me know this. It's disheartening.

I worry a lot. Sending kids to university is a top concern
I have a chronic pain condition that has kept me off work for 18 months. That means if I don't buy back my $10,000 pension I will lose $20,000 because my employer matches the contributions. I don't have $10,000.
Also, today I received some very bad financial news and I'm struggling to keep it together today. It's tough to constantly worry about money. If I don't get back to work in six months I could lose my job. I'm still on the wait list for surgery and then there will be a recovery period before I'm approved to go back. So yes, I'm very worried about my financial future.

Been retired for years now. Most of us get a substantial pension so no worries. The only thing I do is refuse to be bored or inactive. That is the secret to keeping happy.

I think everyone worries a little ,everything is getting more expensive and jobs are not stable it seems ,trying to put money away sometimes is a difficult task, I'm seeing more and more people in their late 60's or early 70's still working because they can't afford to retire
