Question 1 What are your concerns about old age?
Anxiety in old age is often associated with “financial aspects”. The problem of 20 million yen after retirement became a hot topic a little while ago, but I think that the number of people who have a concrete image of retirement is increasing at this age. Due to the recent high prices, many people may be more and more worried about money.
We will introduce the reasons for each answer in a free-form format. ☑️ Opinions of those who answered that they were worried about “financial aspects” in old age
I can’t help but worry about whether I can earn my living expenses until the day of the pension hourly wage.
Savings are far from reaching 20 million in retirement funds My husband has money, but I don’t have any savings, so I’m worried. I don’t have a lot of savings, so I’m worried if I can live on my pension alone. “The cost of living is rising. Energy prices are also a concern.” It is not yet clear how long it will take.
because I have little savings
I feel uneasy when I think about what will happen after my husband retires and whether I can do it.
I’m not sure if I can make it with my current salary. Worried about living expenses after retirement?
I have little savings.
not enough money for retirement
If you lose your health, you may not be able to live. Then you won’t be able to earn money and you won’t be able to live.
I have almost no savings
My income will decrease, my savings will not accumulate, and my child’s school fees will be subject to income restrictions, so I will not be able to receive support money.
It’s that I can’t save money for my old age because I’m giving birth at an old age and my current life is full.
Even though I haven’t saved money for my children’s education, I’m just worried that I can’t save money for my retirement at all. I don’t have enough money, so I’m not sure if it’s enough.
There are price increases in almost everything, my annual income is not going up as I expected due to my age, and I can no longer do anything like I did when I was younger, so there are limits to how I can save money, and it is difficult to circulate my funds well. It’s here. I feel like I can’t stand it because I’m going to use assets for my parents too.
Because I’m worried about whether there will be work ahead.
low income savings
There is nothing but anxiety such as high prices and pension problems. I am appalled at the estimated amount of my pension
I don’t know if I’ll get a pension when I’m old, and I’m not in a state where I can save money right now.
Considering the possible pension and savings, I think I have to lower my quality of life financially.
Since my household income is so low, it seems impossible to save money. It’s already over because it’s the ice age generation that has been abandoned in terms of generation.
Since the amount of pension that can be received is decreasing year by year, will I be able to live on the pension in my old age?
I don’t think I can live on my pension.
I don’t have any savings, so I’m worried if I can live the same way as I do now. ☑️ Opinions of those who answered that they were worried about “health” in old age
I can do anything if I’m fine, but I’m worried if I get sick. “Even though I still feel that my physical strength is declining, it becomes difficult to walk. I think it would be scary if every day continued.
It’s not that I don’t have money worries, but if I’m fine and healthy, I think that’s the best. ”
My biggest concern is my health because if my health isn’t good, I can’t enjoy life even if I have money.
Every time I get a health checkup such as my eyes and stomach, the number of abnormal parts increases.
“It takes time to do the same thing as before”
I don’t just want to live longer, I want to live longer and healthier. Even if you have money and time in your old age, you can’t do what you want without good health.
I have no idea what I would do if I had dementia.
My memory is getting worse year by year, and I feel that my brain is deteriorating more than my body, so I’m worried that I might get dementia.
Even if I don’t take care of my health, I don’t know if it will happen, and compared to when I was young, I feel physically weak in some areas.
I feel powerless
☑️ Opinions of those who answered “Other” as uneasy
I own a lot of things. I’m thinking about a future where these things will become relics and I’ll have trouble getting rid of them, but I’m feeling stuck because I can’t come up with any countermeasures right away.
I’m worried if I’m leading a boring life.
Will I be able to live the same life as before?
Compared to before, I don’t feel the presence of people nearby. I’m worried about my parent’s nursing care. My grandmother lived to be 89 years old, and I feel heavy when I think that I will have to continue caring for my parents for another 15 years.
Next, I asked them what they thought they needed in order to spend a fulfilling time in their old age.
Question 2 Which of the following do you think is the most important for a fulfilling retirement?
best partner (husband or wife)
200 people in their 40s and 50s thought “things they need in their old age” was “money = 57%”, which was the most common.
Thirty-three percent of the respondents answered that they were the “best partner.”
Question 3 It is said that we live in an age of 100 years, but until what age do you intend to work?
I want to retire as soon as possible
up to age 60
up to age 65
up to age 70
up to age 75
keep working as long as you can
22% want to retire as soon as possible
Until age 60: 6.5%
Until age 65: 17%
Until age 70: 9%
Until age 75: 2%
Continue as long as you can work…44%
At 44%, the most common answer was “I will continue to work as long as I can.” It is said that we live in an age of 100 years, but it seems that nearly half of the people do not have the image of living comfortably and comfortably in their old age, and that they will continue to work as long as they are physically strong. .
On the other hand, “I want to retire as soon as possible” was selected next at 22%.
Many people in their 40s and 50s may want to retire as soon as possible if they can solve their money problems.
Question 4 When you think about old age, which of the following do you have a stronger impression of?
Enjoy life in old age
Anxiety about life in old age
To this question, 85% of the respondents answered that they were “anxious.” It seems that they do not have an image of enjoying their old age slowly after finishing their active life.
Rather, there are many anxiety factors, and there may be few people who have a bright image of old age.
We also asked for opinions on the reasons for answering this question in a free-form format, so I will introduce some of them.
☑️ Opinions of those who responded that they are looking forward to life after retirement
I believe that I have been freed from the busyness that I am now, and that I am able to live a rich life both mentally and financially. I feel like I can spend it more slowly now
I can’t imagine my physical strength declining, so I will continue training so that I can move as before.
I have decided that once I am freed from my selfish and toxic parents, I will do what I want to do. I’m more hopeful than worried.
You can leisurely travel with friends or go out to eat at any time Although I have financial concerns, I can imagine that I can live peacefully in my new house.
I want to do a lot of things I want to do, such as traveling. Because it seems to be a different kind of fun than now.
I think you won’t have to worry about that.
I look forward to increasing my knowledge and experience with the years. I want to enjoy every day off and enjoy life by continuing the habit of exercising and staying healthy.
While I am worried about money (I think it will work out somehow), I have a dream that my husband and I will be able to enjoy various things in a camper when we are old.
Because there are many people around me who are enjoying their old age After raising children, I can travel freely.
“I am very anxious. However, if my husband and I have a lot of free time, the speed of time will slow down and I think it will be fun to go on trips.”
I want to be healthy in my old age and travel to various places as my wife. I would rather live with joy than live with anxiety. Lack of knowledge leads to anxiety. If you acquire knowledge and take measures, anxiety will disappear or decrease. It’s more fun than anxiety because I’m doing it.
Although there are aspects of anxiety, I get the impression that there are many people who accept the reality and “enjoy their free time.” ☑️ Opinions of those who answered “I am worried about life after retirement” As we age, our eyes and ears deteriorate, making it difficult to read and hear. The amount of exercise decreases due to muscle weakness and joint pain, which leads to further decline in physical strength. Medical expenses are high because every disease is increasing. I have almost no savings, and I’m getting more and more anxious when I think that my child will need money in the future.

My health is getting worse and worse, my physical strength is getting weaker, and I need money, so I think I’m just worried.
When I think about illness and money, I’m nothing but anxious. I think the most important thing is the financial aspect. Pensions are also collapsing, so I can’t expect much, and since there is a limit to how much I can invest and how much money I can invest, I don’t think I will be able to live in peace after retirement.
