Who are the Baby Boomers?
Between 1946 and 1964, approximately 76 million people were born in the United States. Spawned by post war optimism, the only apt term for this population explosion is baby boom. Children in this generation grew up in a world of social and financial stability. They pursued higher education at an alarming rate and moved farther and farther from home.
This generation has impacted culture and politics for more than 60 years. Boomers watched or were part of some of this country's greatest social changes. The Vietnam War, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Sexual Revolution all shaped their adult outlooks. This is the generation that opened the workplace to all and forged terms like "equal opportunity" and "glass ceiling."
Boomers found identity in work. A loss of this identity, poor debt management, and a lack of adequate savings will make the transition from work to retirement hard on many. Boomers may chose to stay in the workforce well beyond the age of 65.
