Survey: What's Keeping Maine's Older Voters Awake at Night

A new survey from AARP Maine reveals that over-50 set is concerned about financial security, and maintaining their independence as they age. That may be no surprise, but the findings also reveal that many older Mainers fear they will never be able to retire. The results were gleaned from telephone calls to some 2,000 AARP members.
