Del Webb 2013 Baby Boomer Survey

According to the 2013 Del Webb survey, which polled still-working boomers ages 50 to 60 years old, most plan to retire from their current full-time career by the age of 65, compared to a median age of 67 in 2010.

-- More than half (57 percent) of still-working boomers surveyed intend to retire from their current full-time career by age 65.

-- The boomer retirement plan today is more in line with Del Webb Baby Boomer data from nearly 20 years ago (1996), when 50-year-olds planned to retire at a median age of 63.

-- Meanwhile, consistent with prior boomer surveys, 41 percent are either likely or very likely to move at some point, with 29 percent currently undecided on a future move.

"Boomers are clearly feeling more positive about their situation and the housing market in general, with more expecting to retire sooner than just three years ago," said Deborah Wahl, senior vice president and chief marketing officer for PulteGroup Inc., parent company of Del Webb, the nation's leading builder of communities targeted to pre-retirement and retiring boomers. "The percentage of respondents who indicate that they are likely to move again is comparable to prior studies and is significant when you consider the vast group of 79 million boomers in America today."
