    starting in 2011.

    As the year 2011 began on Jan. 1, the oldest members of the Baby Boom generation celebrated their 65th birthday. In fact, on that day, today, and for every day for the next 19 years, 10,000 baby boomers will reach age 65. The aging of this huge cohort of Americans (26% of the total U.S. population are Baby Boomers) will dramatically change the composition of the country.

    And that doesn't account for the ones who decide to retire early. My husband did that. At age 62 he retired and started collecting Social Security.
