Baby boomers coined the term “workaholic” back in the late 1960s, and they appear committed to the concept decades later as they reach their 60s themselves. A new Gallup poll finds that 49% of baby boomers (born from 1946 to 1964) don’t plan to retire until after age 65—if they ever retire at all.
Financial worries are delaying retirement for many. Those who strongly disagree that they “have enough money to do everything” they want to do say they’ll keep working to age 73, on average. Those who strongly agree they have enough money plan to have hung up their spurs by age 66.
