There will be more than 98 million Americans 65 and older in 2060.

There are almost 47 million Americans aged 65 and older in the U.S., according to the Census Bureau, and by 2060, that number will more than double.

Every day since Jan. 1, 2011, 10,000 baby boomers have celebrated their 65th birthday, and will continue to do so until 2030, according to nonprofit think tank Pew Research Center — when that happens, 18% of the country will be at least 65 years old. Furthermore, these older Americans are expected to live longer than the generations before them. Between 1900 and 1999, the average lifespan of people in the U.S. lengethened by more than 30 years, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
