I think they should. They will be getting retirement money and social security, so it's not like they will not be getting any income. I would retire as so as I can because I am sick of working. They younger workers can have it far as I'm concerned.

That is true but for some people, those payments aren't enough for the to survive which is why they continue to work until they are 60 or older.

i don't think you can discriminate with age because there are really people who still act like teen agers but much to our astonishment they are more than 68 years old..i've seen for myself in my life when i try to take a power nap or sleep in the afternoon when they'll be active the whole day...so the decision lies with the person whether he can work or not...

In my opinion, the retirement age should be only 55 years. It is sufficient age for taking retirement. In this way we can also help to younger generation to get job early. At 55 generally children start working, at lease one child. He can shoulder his parent. 60 to 65 years of age is too much.

Yes I think so, so that they will give way to new younger aspiring talents. And also I think it is the time for them to rest and spend their time with their family. Besides, there is still a lot of thing to do after your retirement.

I don't think its the case (at least in the UK) that older people need to retire to make way for younger workers. The UK has an aging population which means if everyone retires at 60 the younger population won't be able to support the economy.
