Will Boomers Have Enough Income to Retire?

Are you looking for some statistics on retirement to drop in your marketing or investment commentary? Check out the free research available from the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College.

For example, the Center recently published "The House and Living Standards in Retirement" by Alicia H. Munnell and Mauricio Soto." This third "brief" on retirement income concludes that households with pensions are in good shape. Those without pensions "do not fare well, even after taking housing into consideration."

On a lighter note, the Center offers a "game that helps women plan for retirement." It's called "Get Rich Slow." I was too lazy to download the game to test it. I wonder how many others will react similarly.
