The purpose of this study was to examine how health and wealth are associated with retirement satisfaction and to investigate what other factors relate to retirement satisfaction among retired individuals aged 60 and above. Using the 2012 Rand HRS data files, the sample for this study included retired individuals aged 60 and older (N=7,051).  In the HRS questionnaire, respondents were asked, “All in all, would you say that your retirement has turned out to be very satisfying, moderately satisfying, or not at all satisfying?” The responses were: 1 = not at all satisfying, 2 = moderately satisfying, and 3 = very satisfying. The logit results show that all factors regarding health were statistically significant, and wealth was also statistically significant in predicting retirement satisfaction among retired individuals.
