Baby boomers Retiring - Does Your Dream for Retirement Match the Reality Check?

Baby boomers retiring are at risk of having their dreams for retirement shattered because of pension shortfalls, low returns on their investments and savings and ongoing responsibilities for children and parents. It's difficult to know what we will do with the years stretching ahead of us which are supposed to be our golden years.

The aim of this website  is to make sure we give you as much information we can to help you make the right decisions. By encouraging you to share your own experiences and dreams for the future we can help each other to get the best out of our retirement years.

The first thing Baby boomers need to do is ask themselves two questions.

  • Can we actually afford to retire?
  • and

  • Do we really want to retire?
  • Baby boomers may have a very different retirement to that of our parents generation. 650,000 of us turned 65 during 2011 and were eligible to retire, rising to 800,000 in 2012 the biggest birth year on record.

    We were the generation that thought we would never grow old! Just look at us now, rocking and rolling towards "retirement".

    Are we going to redefine old age the same as we've redefined other traditional values during our lives? Is the stereotype of what it means to be old out dated and will the baby boomers reshape the notion of retirement?

    Thanks to changes in the mandatory retirement age (whether you think they are good or bad) baby boomers retiring still have many choices.

  • We can spend the kids inheritance and sail off into the sunset feeling the sand between our toes and throwing caution to the wind.
  • We can carry on working full or part-time.
  • We can give up the day job and start our own business.
  • We can find ways to supplement our income to help us fulfil those dreams.
  • We could retire abroad to the sun.
  • Move within the U.K. to somewhere we always wanted to be.
  • Buy a smaller house and use the equity released to go hot air ballooning or learn to fly.
  • Or we could just opt for a more simple retirement enjoying time spent with family and friends.
  • The possibilities are endless the sky's the limit. If you've already made your choice we want you to tell us about it. If you haven't then we hope Baby boomers retiring will help you make the right decision.

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming....
