USA TODAY to Report Special Series "Turning 62: The Retirement Boom Begins"
Date:1/13/2008

MCLEAN, Va., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The oldest members of the largest generation in U.S. history began turning 62 on Jan. 1, becoming the first of the 79 million baby boomers to be eligible to retire with government benefits. This week, USA TODAY examines the consequences as 2.8 million 62-year-olds ponder retirement, in a series called "Turning 62: The Retirement Boom Begins."

USA TODAY's coverage will be reported in the newspaper and online at USATODAY.com from Monday, Jan. 14 through Friday, Jan. 18.
Among the issues the series will include:

-- Whether boomers could be making a costly mistake in filing early for

Social Security benefits and when the right time is to apply for

benefits

-- The challenge for 62-year-olds to find health insurance before they

become eligible for Medicare at age 65

-- How older boomers may be better off financially than their younger

counterparts when it comes to pensions, health insurance and other

benefits.

-- How to manage and invest lump-sum retirement payments

-- The future of federal spending and boomer benefits

-- How retirement should affect investment style and when it makes sense

to get a reverse mortgage

Special features and content available on Money.USATODAY.com will include:

-- Interactive Social Security chart detailing how much a retiree stands

to gain or lose by taking Social Security benefits early at age 62 in

comparison to other ages

-- Audio advice from financial planners and retirement policy experts

and audio interviews with early baby boomer retirees

-- Online readers will be invited to submit questions that will be

answered by financial planning experts

ABC News will air a story in conjunction with the USA Today series Jan. 13 on World News Sunday.
