Consider: More than one in three workers (36%) say they plan to retire after age 65, according to a study conducted by Greenwald & Associations and published this week by the Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI). And that figure is up threefold from 1991, when it was 11%. What’s more, one in 10 workers say they never plan to retire.

Others said changes in the skills required for their job (10%) or other work-related reasons (22%) played a role.
