As many young adults struggle with finding a job and paying off student loans, and as families across the country work to pay off their mortgage, another group of people is even more worried about the future: those close to retirement.

AARP recently conducted a survey that shows just how worried Americans over 50 are about the next few decades of their lives.

Here to talk with us in today’s Mid-day Extra is Nancy A. LeaMond, an executive vice president at AARP.
