WASHINGTON – A report released by the American Association of Retired Persons finds that people age 50-61 view retirement as more of a lifestyle change. The findings are interesting in light of CUNA statistics that say 20% of the nation’s CU CEOs are expected to retire in the next five years.

In the last 20 years incomes in the 50-plus population are up by 18%, with poverty down and wealth up by 36%.
