I have not read the details of how this 'study' was conducted, but I'd wager 'Teachers' are on this list due to their pension plan, which at least historically, have been generous...although this will certainly depend on the state and school district.

If the study is valid, then this will certainly be the major factor. I have found that both teachers themselves and the general public undervalue the significance of their pension.

Both of my inlaws (teachers) retired early with lifetime pensions, SS, and 403b accounts. My wife is a teacher who will be retiring early with the same.

As you illustrate, those pensions can have a PV of well over $1 million.
