AARP poll shows support for state-administered retirement plans

TRENTON — Most New Jersey voters are anxious about their retirement savings, and a majority of them support the idea of the state administering retirement accounts for private workers who don't have them through their jobs, according to a new AARP poll.

The poll results were released by AARP last week as part of the group's efforts to lobby for the passage of legislation to create retirement accounts for the nearly 1.8 million private sector workers in New Jersey whose jobs don't offer a pension or 401(k).
