10,000 boomers to turn 65 every day (till 2030)

5 posts in this topic

In keeping with a generation's fascination with itself, the time has come to note the passing of another milestone: On New Year's Day, the oldest members of the baby-boomer generation will turn 65, the age once linked to retirement, early-bird specials and gray Velcro shoes that go with everything.

...

According to the Pew Research Center, for the next 19 years, about 10,000 people "will cross that threshold" every day — and many of them, whether through exercise or Botox, have no intention of ceding to others what they consider rightfully theirs: youth.

This means that the 79 million baby boomers, about 26 percent of the U.S. population, will be redefining what it means to be older and placing greater demands on the social safety net.

They are living longer, working longer and, researchers say, nursing some disappointment about how their lives have turned out. The self-aware, or self-absorbed, feel less self-fulfilled and thus are racked with self-pity.
