You've actually got the retirement versus death age thing backwards: The earlier you retire, the longer you live. This is from a study funded by Boeing:

And this is why the #1 thing the mutual fund industry doesn't want to talk about--long term rate of return--is important.


Ok...this is interesting. Remember I'm not adamant either way. I can IMAGINE that retiring early might be due to a health issue so that you die soon after, but I can also imagine that NOT being the case. My only issue really was that I didn't buy the fact that if you retire early you will necessarily die sooner too. If keeping my nose to the grindstone adds years to my life, then those aren't years I necessarily want.
