|Single Fact about Seniors:
January 2011 is the official first month of retirement of the first Baby Boomers, 70 million will follow in the next 20 years.
The number of Americans age 55 and older will almost double between now and 2030 - from 60 million today (21 percent of the total US population) to 107.6 million (31 percent of the population) - as the Baby Boomers reach retirement age.
During that same period of time, the number of Americans over 65 will more than double, from 34.8 million in 2000 (12 percent of the population) to 70.3 million in 2030 (20 percent of the total population).
The next generation of retirees will be the healthiest, longest lived, best educated, most affluent in history.
Americans reaching age 65 today have an average life expectancy of an additional 17.9 years (19.2 years for females and 16.3 years for males).
The likelihood that an American who reaches the age of 65 will survive to the age of 90 has nearly doubled over the past 40 years - from just 14 percent of 65-year-olds in 1960 to 25 percent at present. By 2050, 40 percent of 65-year-olds are likely to reach age 90.
