levels. how are people feeling out there? >> reporter: i think a lot better than the last couple of years. 22% of americans are very confident about their retirement. that's up from 13% in 2013. that was a survey low. 36% are somewhat confident. so 58% feeling pretty good. that's also the good news. unfortunately, 24% not at all confident. that's statistically unchanged from the last couple of years. now, the folks who conduct this survey say that confidence is strongly related to whether or not people have retirement plans. >> so how are we doing on savings? >> i think a little better. more people are saving. 67% of all workers or their spouses are saving. 78% of full-time workers have saved. but the problem is, total savings still low. 57% say total value of their savings and investments for retirement is less than $25,000. that includes 28% who have less
than $1,000. now, that includes a lot of people just starting out. as you get older retirement savings increase as income goes up so does your retirement savings. but here's something interesting. as education increases, so too do retirement resources. >> and with retirement savings low, what plan b is there for all of us americans? >> reporter: well, respondents say they are relying on a later retirement date. now, back in 1991, just 11% of workers said they would retire at age 65. this year, that number is more than tripled. 36% of workers. just a word of caution here. working longer always sounds like the great solution. what happens if your boss has not bought into your plan b? or you have a job that's too physically demanding to continue later in life? for more on how to take control of your retirement plan go to jillonmoney.com. >> or buy a lot of lotto tickets and pray. >> yeah. >> see how well that works. >> not too well. jill schlesinger live for us
