Harvard, NPR, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation joined together to poll over 1200 pre-retirees and retirees about key areas of retirement life, including finances, health, institutional care, and more.

Whether one chalks it up to generational differences of the boomer population or any number of other circumstances, one thing is for sure. We need to have a real and honest conversation about what our needs are, what they will be, and what resources will be needed to take care of ourselves.
