Source:MetLife Mature Market Institute and the American Society on Aging, March 2010

From the summary:
– 60% of LGBT Boomers fear being unable to care for themselves as they age; 35% fear becoming dependent on others
– Nearly two-thirds of LGBT Boomers say they have a “chosen family,” a group of people they consider family, even though they are not legally or biologically related
– Nearly half of the LGBT Boomers and four in ten Boomers from the general population say they don’t expect to retire until age 70 or older
– Men in both the LGBT and general population are nearly as likely as women to be giving care to another adult
