Easy answer for the financial side of conservatism:

The older you are, the more money you make and the more financially stable you are. Typically, anyway.

Thus, you become a lot less interested in paying for social programs with your taxes. You no longer wish to be coddled, and can't quite see why you should pay for others to be.

As for social issues:

I don't know. I'm just as socially liberal as I ever was. Maybe people pick up more religion as they get older, and religion is famous for extreme social conservatism. Plus, if you have kids, you suddenly feel a lot less inclined towards total social freedom and the clear dangers it holds for them. :)
