In the wake of the Great Recession, many baby boomers are delaying retirement, hoping that a few more years of work will help them replenish nest eggs devastated by the economic downturn and falling home values.

A poll last fall by The Associated Press and LifeGoesStrong.com showed 73 percent of boomers -- those born in 1946 through 1964 -- planned to work past retirement, up from 67 percent in the previous spring, according to a report in USA Today.
