Why You Should Be A Senior Market Advisor

Are you ready to take your career to the next level? Are you ready to become a senior market advisor? The key word in our organization’s title is senior. The senior population is rising at an alarming rate that requires you to sell Medicare.

The Facts

  • The 65+ age group is expected to double to 98 million by the year 2060.
  • By 2060, seniors will encompass 24% of the population.
  • By 2040, the 85+ age group will triple to 14.6 million.

Why Is This Happening?

Very few babies were born during The Great Depression, leading to an overall decline in the American population. The senior population throughout the 90’s was minuscule, but now that’s changing. In the early 1940s, the economy hit a boost that resulted in a large increase in births. Babies born between 1946 and 1964 are now considered “Baby Boomers,” and today, millions of those Baby Boomers are reaching age 65 and Medicare eligibility.

The population growth is not the only factor at play here. Not only are seniors reaching the Medicare-eligible age, but they’re living longer, working longer, and saving more for retirement. Your lead pool is growing drastically. The U.S. life expectancy has risen from age 68 to age 79. The poverty rate for seniors has dropped from 30% to just 10%. This means that there are millions of new opportunities for you to sell Medicare and ancillary policies to seniors.
