Casey-Kirschling, born 1 second after midnight Jan. 1, 1946, in Philadelphia, was the first area baby of the baby boomer generation and received her first social security check on Tuesday. She was also helping promote "Go Direct," the direct deposit of social security checks into bank accounts, instead of traditional checks which are mailed out and cost more to process.

Kathy, who was born one second after midnight on Januray 1, 1946, is the nation's first Baby Boomer. Kathy made history yesterday as the first of our generation to receive a Social Security retirement benefit. As the first Baby Boomer, Kathy is leading what is often referred to as America's silver tsunami. Over the next two decades, nearly 80 million Americans will become eligible for Social Security retirement benefits, more than 10,000 per day on average!

On a personal note, it was a pleasure meeting Kathy.  She said she loves Vero BeachVero Beach is a great place to retire to seasonally or, better yet, to reside year round. Just ask Kathy!

What an amazing change; it is hard to believe that Baby Boomers are now old enough to collect Social Security.

Hey Stefan,

Mitt Romney is 7 years older than me!  I'm glad you didn't mistake me for John McCain!!
