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.
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.
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.
