The 2021 Fidelity Investments Couples & Money Study analyzes retirement and financial expectations, communication and preparedness among 1,713 couples (3,426 individuals), ages 25 years and older in a married or long-term committed relationship. This is the seventh installment of the study, which was first published in 2007.
Fidelity’s study is unique in that it surveys each member of the couple individually, then brings theiranswers together to identify where partners are aligned, as well as where they might need to focus more attention to ensure they are on the same page.
About the Fidelity Investments 2021 Couples & Money Study
The 2021 Fidelity Investments Couples & Money Study analyzes retirement and financial expectations and preparedness among 1,713 couples (3,426 individuals). These are some of the findings of a survey conducted by Ipsos using the probability-based KnowledgePanel® between March 25 and April 22, 2021 on behalf of Fidelity Investments. The Ipsos KnowledgePanel® is the largest and most well-established online probability-based panel that is representative of the adult US population. Respondents were required to be at least 25 years old, married or in a long-term committed relationship and living with their respective partner, and have a minimum household income of $75,000 or at least $100,000 in investable assets. This online, biennial study was launched in 2007 and is unique in that it tests agreement of both partners in a committed relationship on communication, as well as their knowledge of finances and retirement planning issues.
