    Lets face it. The Great Recession put a kink in manyAmericans retirement plans. Combine that financial blowwith the general uncertainty regarding Medicare and futurecost of private health insurance.

    As a result, more boomers are staying the workforce longer. So what does this mean forndividuals? Along with maintaining a healthy lifestyle, its important that boomers routinely getheir hearing checked-and that they address any hearing loss so it doesnt undermine their efforts onhe job or their quality of life.

    Maturing workers should be getting their hearing checked. And if there is hearing loss theyshould discuss with their hearing healthcare provider whether or not hearing aids could help.

    When people with even mild hearing loss use hearing aids, they improve their jobperformance, increase their earning potential, enhance their communication skills and improve theirprofessional relationships.

    I urge anyone planning to stay in the workforce longer to take that first most critical step tooptimizing your hearing health and enhancing your chances for career success by taking a hearingest. Your hearing health and continued job success are within your control.

    Boomers benefit from

    hearing aids as they stayin the workforce longer
