But it would be a mistake to focus on other generations to the exclusion of Boomers.It’s important for financial marketers to remember that this segment represents a markedly higher percentage of the population with each passing year. In fact, the U.S. Census Bureau reports that there will be 78 million people 65 years and older by 2035, compared to 76.7 million under the age of 18. That will mark the first time in U.S. history where seniors outnumber children.Consider, too, that as of 2019 the youngest Boomers are 55, the oldest 73. This huge, still-active generation has prompted much debate about the workforce of the future, given that people are living longer, healthier, lives and working well into their late 60s.last_img
