Paula Zahn did a two part show by the same name last year (I have both episodes on my iPod) and I thought this was a rerun, but evidently not. Thanks for the heads up, I'll have to find it in my local listings.

I saw a similar, if not the same, program one night last week.

Speaking of Dish, Paula is looking good!

This looks like it, you can click on local stations by zip code to find out if/when it airs on your stations.

Retirement Revolution: The New Reality | PBS

[Edit: you can also watch it online in 8 - 12 minutes segments.]

Is it focussed on the 62-65 yr old retiree? I wish they'd do one on ERs!

WalkingWood, are you into Cane Fu? I'm going to go out and get me a piece of wood I can swing around after watching the show. Maybe kick some ash.

LOL!
Sorry - you lost me on that comment.
I did google it. Walking Canes for mobility, self defense, exercise and rehabilitation - by Cane Masters

I'm watching the series on my pc and, so far, it is about baby boomers retiring in time for SS. It has made me feel good about Social Security being around for a while.

I saw it and it was not very helpful. Unless you have absolutely nothing else to do, I would not disrupt my schedule for this.

There was some good parts, they talked about SS and refunding earlier
years. They didn't really talk about the financial part, was more of a
collection of human interest stories.
Paula is looking good.

I suspect there won't be much ground we haven't covered in detail here, though I could be wrong.

IIRC, one lady said she paid back 78,000 and was happy with the additional $500/month that gave her.

Yeah, look at Paula. I have one degree of separation from her. A relative was photographed with her (twice) at a charity event last year when she looked like this:

Apparently you didn't get the memo. No one really cares about early retiree's.

Her brother Steve lived directly across the hall from me for a year in college. He was a bright, driven guy - crazy about railroads. I met Paula, then his younger sister, several times back then. She was a very ambitious high schooler at the time. How many degrees of separation is that?

Looks like Paula got herself a new push-up...
