In seeing that the retirement age is set to increase to 67 just before I turn 65 I have about 26 years untill I can retire in 2029. I'llbe lucky to collect anything since I doubt my health will let me see 60. One can hope though

Been there, done that, and after 3 months hated it. I think never again will I try. I need to work and if I'm going to spend time, I want money. Volunteering is great but I can't spend 60 hours per week doing so.

If I use my employer's "80" formula (age + experience = 80), I can retire at full pension in 10.5 years (42 years old + 17 years at MSY = 59. Leaves 21 divided by 2 = 10.5 years.

I'll probably go into airport planning and consulting at that time. (Make some real money)

If the question is in reference to my current part time job that I'm holding down until I finish school, the answer is exactly 3 months, 6 days, and counting. To bad I don't get a pension, but just being gone will be good enough.

I'm retiring in May after 34 years in education...but I'm immediately going back to work for the school district doing the same thing in the same school. This will allow me to draw my normal teacher salary plus a healthy retirement check.

Plan to do this for 4 or 5 more years.

After 35 years with NASA, I'll be retiring in April of 2018 - at the...ahem...tender age of 55.

Well, if I opt for my company's early retirement age of 50, with 30 years service, then I still have 15 years to go.......wish I could win the Lotto before then though !  Wink/being sarcastic

I "retired" on 8/13/01 at age 45...I quit the "real world" job to take over the family hobby/business...but waited TOO long to do it! Don't think I'll ever work for a company again...worked for 23 yrs as mainframe COBOL programmer...nice job...but the paperwork took all the fun away!

never. I would die without work. I'd go crazy. Unless of course I had enough money to shop 24/7 but I doubt that will ever happen.

I've been two and a half years under the big ol'e grindstone so far. I guess, it'll be at least another 40 years until retirement, because there are currently talks in Germany to postpone the retirement age until 70.

I might have to get a job as a greeter at Wal-Mart sooner than retirement so I can get health insurance.  Sad

As of 3.5 weeks ago, I have exactly 43 years till retirement at 65. This is, of course, assuming I get a job when I graduate.

NEVER!

I will never stop working. Once I get too old to drive a tractor trailer I will go drive a school bus or something because once your body stops, you stop and it all goes down hill from there. I have a good friend who just turned 73 Saturday and he's just as active as can be and he still stands up stright and all. He sees people who he grew up with and they're all in wheel chairs and what not because when they retired they stopped doing something.
