Baby Boomers have done everything bigger than the generations who preceded them, and they will be approaching retirement planning in a new and different way, said Andrew P. Garvin, chief executive officer of PreRetirementLife.com.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 14, 2008
This year, more than 4 million baby boomers will turn 50 -- that's more than 12,000 a day. They are the single largest generation in history, with more discretionary income than any other age group. And, unlike the generations before them, baby boomers are living longer and working longer, creating a brand new life stage: Preretirement.
Now, a new Web site designed specifically for adults ages 50 to 64, has launched and is receiving rave reviews. Barron's named it one of the "best sites for Retirement Planning." The industry newsletter Second50Years called it "well organized, thoughtfully designed and easy to navigate."
"Baby Boomers have done everything bigger than the generations who preceded them, and they will be approaching retirement planning in a new and different way, said Andrew P. Garvin, chief executive officer of PreRetirementLife.com. "So we have created a robust, practical guide for them." The pre-retirement and retirement planning site is live in Beta, and Mr. Garvin is seeking as much feedback as possible from visitors to help shape the next round of improvements.
"Now, boomers will be the generation setting the tone of a new life stage. They are no longer just baby boomers. They are Preretirees," said Garvin.
Preretirement is a life stage between the ages of 50 and 64 that marks the transition between your career and your future, said Garvin. Research shows that today's Preretirees may never retire in the traditional sense. They are active, health-conscious and inquisitive, embracing technological innovation and the new experiences that come with life's success.
By 2010, 58.4 million people will fall into the Preretiree group, making up 20 percent of the population. As they embark on this dynamic and challenging life stage, they will seek practical solutions to help plan and approach retirement while making their Preretirement life more rewarding.
