According to a Census Bureau report, there were 40.3 million people age 65 and older on April 1, 2010. This was up 5.3 percent from 35 million in 2000 (and just 3.1 million in 1900). There are now more Americans in this age group than at any other time in U.S. history. These numbers are expected to increase more rapidly over this decade as more baby boomers start to turn 65 from 2013. Clearly, the numbers are soaring and this increases the demand for Medicare and Medicare Supplement policies.
