Older Voters Anxious About Economic Future

Older Voters Anxious About Economic Future
(Undated) -- Ahead of the upcoming elections, a new report finds voters over age 50 want candidates to start talking about how to improve their financial security. Heather Heppner with A-A-R-P says their survey finds that while the economy seems to be improving, older Americans are still anxious about their future.
Heppner says voters overwhelmingly want to live independently as they age and want elected officials to make the availability of at-home care a priority. The survey also found the majority of 50-plus voters are concerned about rising costs of utilities and access to affordable landline phone service.
