The article discusses a survey of members of the baby boom generation by Sun Life Financial which reveals that most retirees and people planning to retire expect their income needs to vary month to month. Many expect their needs to vary depending on what they want to do with their life, with many others claiming that they will need to find a job while retired to make more money for their lifestyle. One-fifth of people don't expect their income needs to vary, but do worry about portfolio downturns.
