Think saving for old age can’t be fun? Try making it a game

When Gabi Stack imagines herself at 75, she pictures a life that ideally includes a move to Germany, lots of travel and ample time for lingering at cafes with friends.
So she was startled when she received a digitally “aged” image of herself that didn’t match her self-image of an active, independent person.
“I truly hope I don’t look like the picture,” she said, noting extra wrinkles creasing her forehead and a “fatter” face. “I’ll find out in 20 years if I look like that.”
The image was created at an employee benefits fair on Maui, in Hawaii, using an app called AgingBooth. The idea is to get employees to think more concretely about their future, older selves — and motivate them to make financial plans.
