Boomer women are more uncomfortable, worried, or concerned than boomer men about their current financial situation and what the future may hold for them, according to an AARP Public Policy Institute survey of nearly 4,000 boomers aged 50-64 with current or recent labor market experience. This fact sheet focuses on the responses to 16 questions in the survey that were designed to get at feelings of worry or concern; they do not include specific events or situations that might cause that concern, such as becoming unemployed or falling behind on mortgage payments.
