Disabilities are more common among the elderly and that population is growing in the US: Boomers will be 65 or older by 2030 and Generation X starts hitting retirement age shortly after. Are we ready?

In our eternal quest for long and health lives, new data shows America’s getting the ‘long’ part right – average life expectancy is expected to climb to 85.6 years by 2060 – but as the number of elderly Americans increases, the number of disabled Americans has grown with it.

  • Some 40% of adults age 65 and older in the U.S. have a disability, according to the CDC.
  • Some of the most common fall under the categories of mobility, cognition and independent living – difficulty doing errands alone.
  • The population of adults age 65 and older has ballooned in the past decade, driven by aging baby boomers, but all boomers will be 65 or older by 2030.
  • A couple of years after that, the leading edge of Generation X will hit full retirement age.
