According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 10,000 Boomers will turn 65 every day for the next 18 years.
For some people, retirement isn’t a topic that they enjoy talking about. Many Boomers entering retirement today who avoided discussions are faced with regret. The 4 most common regrets you'll hear from retirees are:
- I took my Social Security too soon.
- I went into retirement carrying too much debt.
- I failed to factor in the rising costs of health care and inflation.
- I've just waited too long to get started
In this day in age, retirees are healthier and more active than ever, and Baby Boomers seem to be staying younger longer. They blazed the trail for a change in generational standards by postponing life’s big decisions such as marriage, children and becoming home owners. In turn, this means that most have shied away from discussing and planning for their retirement. Unlike generations passed Boomers will probably see a longer and more fruitful retirement in the years to come. Here are some top facts related to today’s pre-retirees:
- Fewer than 20% of pre-retirees have planned how they will manage their cash flow in retirement.
- 64% of pre-retirees do not expect to receive enough income from Social Security and employer pensions to cover their basic living expenses in retirement.
- 74% of pre-retirees with a written plan are confident their money will last their lifetime.
