A decade ago many people strived to retire young. Now most people are nudging back their retirement date and wondering if they will be able to retire at all. The age workers expect to retire has increased from an average of 60 in 1995 to 66 today, according to a new Gallup poll of 1,077 adults.

Most Americans now expect to retire at age 65 or later. Over a third (37 percent) of workers plan to retire after age 65, up from just 15 percent in 1995. Retirement at exactly age 65 also remains a popular choice. A quarter of employees plan to retire at age 65, down only slightly from 29 percent in 1995.
