recognized pension plans have been devalued. Again, the baby boomer generation
hardly continues in the same job till their retirement. However, some of them have
profitable retirement plan to support them even after retirement days.

satisfactory or you want more money to meet your financial needs? What can the
baby boomer generation do to meet its requirements after retirement age? It should
think about ways for saving for retirement so that each of them can live a stress free
life.

and deposit it in a secured savings account. Also, you can uniformly distribute it in a
couple of different savings accounts so that you can easily manage it. Visit an
investment consultant and discuss with him to explore the effective options for
keeping your savings safe and tax free until you start using them. Since the baby
boomer generation is expected to live 10 to 15 years more than its retirement age

advisor will not only evaluate your needs but also decide the exact amount that can

retirees choose to move from a big yard or home to a comparatively smaller house
and cut down their expenses. You can take advantage of maintenance free living on
offer by different communities that will enable you to live in a nice home but
without involving any maintenance cost. Since many of such communities have
common areas, pools and exercise facilities, it will be a cost saving option for
retirees. The baby boomer generation can easily earn extra money by selling their
larger homes, and seeking for a maintenance free housing option with such kind of
community service providers.
