Sorry, Joe, but it's not even close. According to the most recent
census data available (which is a couple of years old), there are
approximately 225 million people over the age of 18 in this country.
Of that group, more than 156 million, or 69%, are under 55. The
55-plus population is just under 69 million. As a fraction of the
whole U.S. population, that's 25% under-18s, 52% 18-54s, and 23% 55
Unfortunately, I don't know an easy way to find out the share of
national wealth held by each of those groups.
