The past two years have not been easy for the Baby Boomer generation, especially those on the cusp of retirement. Many lost jobs early on or midway through the pandemic and watched their retirement savings see-saw in the markets. Some decided to leave the workforce for good and slide into retirement–sometimes a bit earlier than intended. Others, however, struggled a bit, but ultimately have been rejoining the workforce for various reasons, including not being financially ready to retire, not considering themselves old enough to retire, and wanting to remain active or working. Whatever the reason, deciding to re-enter the workforce can be a tough thing to do. Aside from those who left and came back, there are also a number of Americans of the Baby Boomer generation who, while not facing layoffs or being forced out of the workplace, decided to work longer than intended due to all the economic trends that have occurred in recent years. In other words, they just don’t have the money to retire. This can be especially tough for those–regardless of age–who want to enjoy retired life, but yet it seems so far away. If you find yourself in one of the aforementioned scenarios, don’t worry. There are many Americans–and most likely many around the globe–in your same shoes. While I don’t have the answer for how to break out of it, I would suggest that you keep doing what you are doing and keep saving for retirement. You will get there eventually and you’ll hopefully have every chance to enjoy it! No matter what your situation, don’t hesitate to keep checking your retirement funds and, if you need to make adjustments or have questions, don’t be afraid to speak with a certified financial planner or wealth manager.
