A recent Associated Press
LifeGoesStrong.com
poll truly crystallized how significant the
retirement crisis in the United States is for baby
boomers. We were so struck by it that we chose
to create this How To Guide that we hope will
help save the Golden Years for seniors and baby
boomers.
Here are a few of the troubling statistics:
44% of Americans born between 1946 and
1965 are not confident that they'll have enough
money to live comfortably in retirement.
More than half (57%) say they lost money
during the recent economic downturn.
Many who were affected (42%) say that's why
they're delaying their retirement.
While more than half (55%) of boomers say
they have at least some confidence that they will
have the financial resources to live comfortably
during retirement, only 11% are deeply confident
that they are financially prepared.

POLL RESULTS
FORCE US
TO TAKE ACTION
Clearly, we are a country in crisis, and we
believe that seniors and boomers need to
review their nancial options and take a
fresh look and approach at funding their
retirement. For some, a normal retirement
may be out of reach, but for others, life
insurance and life se lements may
provide an answer.
