ASPEN, Colo. (AP) Affordable housing residents in Pitkin County will have to wait a little longer before being eligible to retire in their units.
The Aspen City Council and Pitkin County commissioners agreed Tuesday to raise the retirement age from 65 to the current ages the Social Security Administration sets when someone gets full benefits. That age is currently 67 for anyone born after 1967.
According to the Aspen Daily News, officials are concerned that too many baby boomers are retiring, filling up local affordable housing with people no longer working, and they need to make work for younger workers.
