The overwhelming majority (86%) of baby boomers express concern about the affordability of health care in retirement, but very few pre-retirees admit they have taken financial steps to prepare for health care costs in retirement, according to a study released today by Ameriprise Financial (NYSE: AMP). The Health, Wealth and Retirement SM study, which surveyed more than 1,000 employed baby boomers ages 50-64 who are preparing for retirement with at least $100,000 in investable assets, asked these individuals about their attitudes toward health, health care costs and the impact each may have in retirement.
