When should we retire?

Should we retire at the normal ages,

60 for women

65 for men

Or should we retire when we feel like it?

I know this woman who says,

"I'll keep working till I drop"

I think she means that she'll keep working until she is simply to old or ill to keep doing it. She's 81 now shocked_yellow and still working away in her shop.

But for some (Like Police Officers, Nurses, Council people) there is a point where they are told that they are too old to continue doing their job.

Now 'me', I'd retire now at 20 brshteeth

I don't think there is a "normal" age to retire now TCFW,
By the time you reach retirement age there will (as I understand it) be no social pensions left.

In other words if you don't get out and work and pay for a private pension, you will be very short of cash later on.

I've seen too many people who retire and then just fade away.

Me, I plan on getting it so I work doing what I love so I never want to give it up.

That's my goal and I'm sticking to it.
