As a group, the next generation of seniors will still have trouble paying for health care, but they’ll fare better than current retirees, according to a report released Tuesday by the Kaiser Family Foundation. Future retirees, the report said, will have slightly higher incomes, greater savings and more equity in their homes. But that doesn’t mean everyone. The biggest improvements will be for people who are white and better educated.
