    You may not live to reach the age of 65. You could die before that.

    well. they assume you would; hence retirement age is extended to 62 (65)
    that is stupidity at it's best.
    i can't imagine myself struggling to work at 55. let alone 65

    You have a choice ?? I mean.. if you have school going children, a family to feed, mortgage to pay, bills to settle, medical fee to pay... you can stop "struggling" as you put it ??

    Looking at the link below... Even European Countries has in recent years, rise their retirement age. Its 65 for Germany and 60-67 for Greece (if the Greek Govt still have $$$ to pay you), 62-67 for USA and 60 for UK.

    Quite a few news report has hint that both Germany (to 67) and UK (to 70) will be raising their retirement age...

    Age is not the main factor in retirement... WEALTH is. Without $$$$... how does one stop working.

    I am coming to that retirement intersection. Mentally, I am still very able and contributing. Physically, I didn't see any problem although My works are more administrative/management in nature. However, I also do not want to leave only when told. In another word, outstay your welcome.

    It will not be 60, 65 or whatever numbers. It is all about satisfaction and knowing what you are doing. Retired life would be traveling, gardening and of course photography!

    For those reaching this intersection, start preparing. Even if you are in your early 20, you also need to plan.

    Mental torture from the nagging would be worse IMO. At least over exertions is still a form of enjoyment. LOL

    My point is, you are only given 70. So when you start is important.

    Take a look at the death statistics. About a third of yearly mortality is in the 55 to 65 age group.

    Ya, we are talking about we are given to live to 70 and should retire at 50, aren't we? And the stats clearly shows about a third of all would die from 50 to 70.
    Sad!

    But you hv to remember that no matter what they are only given 70, and if Nikon, by reason of strength, maybe 80.

    1/6 is not a third, if you haven't noticed.

    This is something many here can think of doing. It's better than working in food courts or picking cardboards.
    Still doing? And how long has that been since?
    It is good for those in related lines before retirement to transit to pro photography after retirement
