RE: Down goes the Dow
That's fine and dandy, Flagpole. But nothing in those links addresses the skewing of early retirees dying 8 years earlier than others.

Sure, people stop working sooner b/c of illness (800/year according to one of your links). That's common sense. They also do to take care of ill relatives (including children), enjoy life, go part-time, etc.

Just something to keep in mind, statistically, people that retire early tend to live 7 years less on average than those that retire at 65 or older.


2) I could see it being true actually, but it's skewed, because the REASON that some people retire early is to deal with a potentially deadly illness

The first two links are just articles that list health reasons as a top 5 reason why people retire. The last link has some stats for you.

And, these were easily gotten...many more links with stats on this. Easy for you to have gotten. I'm not one to throw out stats for every assertion I make, and I don't make them based on lack of evidence.[/quote]
