But hey, "science" tells us if you retire at 62 you are going to die sooner.
From the Daily Mail:
Most people count down the days to retirement, but a recent study has found it could actually send you to an early grave.
New findings suggest that working past age 65 could actually add more years onto your life.
It was found to lead to an 11 percent lower risk of death from all causes.
The study found that even those who termed themselves unhealthy are also likely to live longer, just as long as they kept punching the clock.
'It may not apply to everybody, but we think work brings people a lot of economic and social benefits that could impact the length of their lives,' said Chenkai Wu, the lead author of the study and doctoral student at Oregon State University.Given the health issues my mother and other people in their 90s often suffer, a long life may be overrated.
I was able to retire at 62. I have no regrets -- so far.
