Person by person, my generation is passing away.
And there are so many of us. Each day, ten thousand members of my generation reach retirement age (Pew Research). Funerals are constant among my peers.
It is an easy conversation starter when I approach someone my age and ask about plans for retirement. Most have no plans. They have not even checked their Social Security accounts. But they always say that waiting to draw Social Security will give them a larger payout. To which I reply, “It depends. It depends on how long you plan to live.” And that’s the part we have no assurance about.
