Implications of an aging workforce

According to the article by Mr. Fred Reish quoted on PlanSponsor, with so many of us living longer, there will be far reaching implications on the economy, employers, and companies that provide services to an aging work force.

As you read the article, give some thought to:

1) What does this mean for you? How far are you from retirement?

2) When would you begin preparing / planning for those years?

3) Do any of the issues listed in the article apply to you – either as an employee or as an employer?

Knowing this, would you do anything differently between now and retirement, or as you get closer?
