The Middle-Income Boomers, Financial Security and the New Retirement study from the Bankers Life and Casualty Company Center for a Secure Retirement (SM) (CSR) found one-third of middle-income Boomers expect to retire after the traditional retirement age of 65 and 31 percent are uncertain at what age they will be able to retire.

CSR defines middle-income Boomers as between ages 47 and 65 with income between $25,000 and $75,000.
