No plans to retire at 65, many baby boomers say

7:50 pm on 15 September 2009

An online survey of baby boomers has revealed that more than three quarters of those who responded have no plans to retire at 65.

Sharon Buckland, who works for the fuel company Chevron, conducted the online survey as part of her MBA because she says no one appears to have asked baby boomers themselves what they intend to do.

Ms Buckland told Nine to Noon that some 75% of survey respondents said they had no intention of having a quiet retirement, while 30% are planning a new career.
