Number of Those Working Past 65 Is at a Record High

Number of Those Working Past 65 Is at a Record High – NYTimes.com.

Hardly surprising – and Canadian trends are similar, as I point out in Beyond Age Rage. Combine the fact that Boomers and seniors need to fund a longer life span (if you’ve made it to 65, you’re looking at living well into your 80s) and have very inadequate levels of savings, the “traditional” retirement age of 65 looks less and less realistic. (And that’s without factoring in the extra cash they need to help support their will-they-ever-get-launched millennial children and grandchildren.)
