Boomers Delaying Retirement

A survey by Sun Life Financial found that 65% of American workers will delay retirement by at least one year. That’s an 11% increase from 2008. Sun Life also found that 27% of Americans now believe they’ll have to work at least five more years because of the economic environment.

Indeed, this is disturbing. And it further boosts my story that anyone near retirement age needs to check out countries like Costa Rica.

Best wishes,
