Older Baby Boomers appear to be doing a better job of preparing for retirement than younger Boomers, though both groups are sorely underprepared for their golden years, MetLife found in a survey.

Forty-six percent of those age 62 or older say they are comfortable with what they have saved for retirement, but only 57% of the youngest Boomers, those age 45, are.

A full two-thirds of this group is still working, half of them full-time.
