ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., May 14, 2008-What if the money you are counting on for retirement just isn't there? What if the baby boom goes bust? On Friday, May 16th at 9PM & 12AM ET, CNBC shows you how you can still live out your golden years the way you want to.

Hosted by CNBC's Bill Griffeth, CNBC's "Survival Guide: Boomerangst," devotes one-hour to the 78 million baby boomers who are having some serious angst about how, when, if and where they are going to retire.

The program will take a look at the growing unease for the generation that brought you peace signs and leveraged buyouts; the generation that isn't saving enough money; the generation that can't count on company pensions and social security; and the generation that might not collect a dime from mom and dad.

What are the problems this mega-generation is facing? What's changed for boomers in the last 12-months? Why are they such an important generation? Our panel of experts will help answer all of these questions and more. Tune-in baby boomers....This is YOUR Survival Guide.
