It’s no secret that as our population ages, the workforce is aging right along with it. U.S. employees 65+ now outnumber teenagers in the workforce for the first time since 1948. As the data in this report indicate, in 2014, over one in three workers age 45+ expects to retire at age 66 or older, compared to just over one in five 10 years ago. Moreover, 72 percent of workers ages 45 to 74 envision working in retirement either out of choice or necessity.
