here in the States the retirement age is 65years old. which only means that you have to be that old to start getting social security benefits that you've been paying into for you whole working life. there are some exceptions to that age though..not sure what they might be, but i know there are some. however..in the past oooh 5 to 8 years more and more seniors are having to continue working..or go back to work in order to afford their monthly houseing, food and medical expenses. i know of at least one man who's had to go back to work at the age of 73.
