Currently the UK government are trying to raise the retirement age to 67 because there is not enough money to cover state pensions and other state benefits.
Do you imagine working until you are 67? If not, when do you imagine retiring?

This is in line with the thoughts of the new German Chancellor. I wonder how popular it will be there

It is REALLY popular, believe me. Why not 70? Or 75, since the life expectancy has increased so much?

I am pretty much resigned to the fact that I will have to work until I die...  irked

I'm not working a day past 60. I think we work long enough and don't give ourselves enough time to live and enjoy our life. My parents are retiring together.They will retire in 10 years. Their home here will be their holiday home, they#'' be jetsetting around the world all the time, and I don't blame them.

You don't have to retire at 67. That's only the age they will pay a state pension. Anyone can take early retirement if they have the pension there to do so.

I think it's bang out of order of the government though - sap everyone for every last breath and every last penny of taxes before they no longer work. Another reason why we'll be moving abroad at the first opportunity!  Smile

Average retirement ages in the United States keep falling. Something like 80% of Social Security recipients opt to take the reduced benefits available at age 62 rather than working to 65 and getting full benefits. In fact, many people are using private pensions and savings to retire long before they reach "normal" retirement age. Retirement at 55 is commonplace these days and even 50 is not unheard-of.
When you think about it, there are several trends that should lead to retirement at older and older ages:

1. Fewer younger workers in the "pipeline" to replace those who retire.
2. Increased years of schooling, which means less time in the workplace.
3. Longer lifespans.
4. People remaining healthy for longer, therefore capable of work.
5. Fewer and fewer physically strenuous jobs (<10% in the United States).

Yet, in face of all this, an increasing number of people are retiring when barely into middle age. What gives?

I have already retired once . . . .

I'll retire again - for the last time - in 2012. After I get my daughter through College. I'll be 53.

Depends what job I get. If I can work for QF and become a Captain by the time I'm 40 I'll work there for a long time. If I get some boring job in an office then I'll retire at 55. My grandma is about to retire and shes nearly 60 shes worked for the same company for 20 years. Then shes going to go around Australia. Can't wait to retire.

Hi all,
I'll probably adhere to the Indian retirement age of 55..I don't think it's worth it for work forever. My dad just semi-retired at age 60. He didn't think it was worth the hassle anymore either. Time to do some traveling or do something fun.
