Daughters Expecting to Work Longer than Their Mothers

Women, here is why you need to love ( or at least like) what you do for a living. We're working longer than our moms.
A MetLife poll comparing retirement planning and concerns between mothers and daughters found that while 74% of mothers indicated that they had retired before age 65, only 37% of daughters expect to do so. Daughters were more than twice as likely to indicate that they plan to work to age 65 or beyond (51%) as their mothers were to indicate that they actually retired at such an age (21%). Food for thought for any woman thinking about changing professions or opting out.
