Defining “Leading Edge” Baby Boomers
|November 20, 2014||Posted by Marcia Mantell under Boomers in Action|
Leading Edge Boomers are those who started it all. They are the dynamic retiring baby boomers shaping the very definitions of what it means to be retiring. This leading group of the Boomer generation were born from 1946 to 1955, and the first wave turned 65 in 2011.
They grew up in a time of prosperity and general comfort. They pushed the norms of the day and created trends the likes of which had never been seen before. And, today, as this leading group approaches retirement, we look to them to help us redefine just what “retirement” really can be.
Already, those who are signing up for Medicare and deciding if they should take early Social Security are experimenting with this time of their lives. Meet some of the leading edge boomers and read how retiring baby boomers are thinking about retirement – or reinvention. Tap into the innovation and ideas for how we all can reshape and redefine the very idea of retirement!
