The article discusses the results of a survey by Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, which found that a majority of people worried about illness damaging their retirement savings. Nearly half were concerned about losing their jobs, while about a quarter of them feared that a death in the family would impair their retirement plans. Although stock market volatility could still undermine many people's savings, only a quarter of those surveyed mentioned it as a major concern.
