Talkin’ ‘Bout My Generation

Wednesday, September 25, 2013 - 8:15 AM
The financial health of our country’s aging population should concern every generation.  According to Hebrew SeniorLife, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, “some 78 million Baby Boomers in the U.S. will turn 65 at the rate of one every eight seconds for the next 16 years.”  Currently, 31 percent of all Baby Boomers are retired, 19 percent will retire within the next five years, and 50 percent will not retire for more than five years.  In other words, well over two-thirds of all Baby Boomers are nearing their retirement years.  A major concern for our country’s government and its citizens is how households plan to support and will support themselves upon their disengagement from the workforce.
