The oldest millennials are starting to enter retirement

There's a point in life where it's no longer possible to shrug off retirement planning as something we can look forward to in the future.

Millennials are on the verge of reaching that stage. The oldest members of this generation are 42 years old - jump ahead 20-plus years, and they'll be starting to enter retirement. To find out, I'm asking older millennials to fill out the questionnaire below.

In the 2000s, the millennial generation became known for its status as the greatest generation of all time. The challenge for traction in the work force defined these young adults in a financial sense. Many Millennials have years - decades, in fact - to prepare for retirement. But habits and attitudes they have today will have a big impact on how things turn out. How well positioned are millennials?

This anonymous survey is aimed at older millennials who will turn 35-42 this year, a time when retirement is becoming more of a consideration than in younger years.
