Title: Boomers and the Great Recession: Struggling to Recover Date: Sept. 2012 Source: American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) Summary: (includes link to the 131 page paper) This AARP Public Policy Institute research report examines how boomers fared during and after recent recession. It is based on the findings of two on-line surveys of a random sample of boomers aged 50 to 64 who were in the labor force in October 2010 or who had been in it at some point in the previous three years—roughly since the start of the recession in December 2007. What were boomers’ experiences with unemployment and reemployment? Who withdrew from the labor force? What barriers did the unemployed face in finding work? To what extent was age discrimination a problem? Who received unemployment benefits? Were efforts made to hone job skills? How much economic hardship was experienced during the recession? How did boomers cope with economic uncertainty? What were their concerns about financial well-being in retirement
