Did You Know?
The number of senior citizens is growing continuously.
The U.S. Census Bureau projected that, in 2030, 10 states will have more people 65 and older than under 18. As the baby boomers slowly become senior citizens by 2011, the population of 65 and older will grow faster than the total population in every state. 26 states are, in fact, said to double their 65 + populations within the next 25 years. Today, about 70 million baby boomers will soon hit their retirement years.
Elder law is one of the newest and fastest growing specialties in the legal profession. It combines elements of Estate Planning, Wills and Trusts, Conservatorship, Health Care Planning and Medicare/Medicaid Planning. It draws upon the experience of elder law attorneys representing older clients in legal decisions affecting their eligibility for disability, social security and other public benefit programs including services supported by the Older Americans Act.
The older population, persons 65 years or older, numbered 35.9 million in 2003. They represented 12.3% of the U.S. population, about one in every eight Americans. By 2030, there will be about 71.5 million older persons, more than twice their number in 2000. People 65+ represented 12.4% of the population in the year 2000 but are expected to grow to be 20% of the population by 2030.
