More Middle Boomers -- those 52 to 58 years old -- expect to work about five years beyond their planned retirement date, thanks to the recession, according to a new study of that segment of 29 million people.

The "MetLife Study of Boomers in the Middle" showed 54% saying they were behind in their retirement-savings goals. Economic conditions have hurt 76% of those surveyed, and almost half of those are concerned about their ability to recover.
