A recent Harris Interactive Poll conducted by Harris Interactive for financial services provider Principal Finance Group indicates that many retired or soon-to-retire baby boomers are experiencing unease about their long-term financial situation.

Among those still working, the survey found some of these fears include whether they will be able to maintain the quality of life, ability to afford medical care and inflation reducing their purchasing power.

Poll results indicate that retirees share many of the same fears as those still in the workforce. Added to that list, 21% of retirees in the survey expressed concern about being able to afford the basic necessities of life.
