    When do you believe is a good age to retire?

    Personally, I would like to continue working well past 100 iy”h.


    When you spend more time in the bathroom than behind the desk.

    Not counting days when you have eaten a Chicago style hot dog.


    100 What?




    Retirement is leading cause of death in America.


    retire from what?? the CR? never!!


    When you are no longer a productive asset to your company/employer. Or when you are financially secure enough to do whatever it is you would rather do than work. For some it is travel, for some men it is go back to learn and for some it is just to spend time with their family.

    But for everyone reading this, you should all be healthy and be zoche to work and be matzliach for as long as you choose to.


    Age to retire? Never!


    Rav Moshe ZT”L said a vort: “Sheishes Yamim Ta’aseh Melachah” – so no off days on Sundays, and no age of retirement – 6 days a week till you’re dead

    Aishes Chayil

    I’m with TMB here (for a change!)

    I wana work till I expire…..


    From full time work? As soon as you can afford to (my goal is 59.5.. the date I can start drawing down on my IRA without penalty)

    But to stop working altogether? That’s a bad idea. At 60, you’ve still got a solid 15-20 years ahead of you were you can get aroud without assistance, so some type of part-time work (even if its as a volenteer) is crucial to keep your sanity.

    Face it. By the time you’ve made it to that age, you’re up at dawn anyways. What are you going to do all day.. fight with your spouse? Best bet is to have a place to escape to. Plus, you get a half fare transit card, so how can you lose?!



    Retirement is leading cause of death in America.

    Actually I’ve heard that statically 100% of the people that breathe end up dying. So probably oxygen is the leading cause of death.
