This paper analyzes the reasons associated with discomfort from spending down retirement assets. Data collected from a propriety online survey is used to evaluate the associations between savings habits on post-retirement spending discomfort. To better understand the effect of savings habits, we control for risk preferences, spending preferences, longevity and medical expectations, and other relevant life-cycle demographics. The results from this study will provide insight into the behavioral issues that limit post-retirement spending.
