The confidence of U.S. consumers in their financial future continues to erode; yet they are not flocking to financial planners for help, according to the 2003 annual consumer survey by the Financial Planning Association. 54 percent have changed their retirement plans due to the current economy. Despite a more favorable impression of planners than stockbrokers, only 23 percent had used the services of a planner in 2003.
