Should older workers retire if they are financially able?

By Amos D . Created on 22 Aug, 2021
Many of us look forward to retirement but, when the time comes, the thought of stepping away can be frightening and confronting. If we have the means, should we be stepping aside to make room for others or continue to pay our taxes and apply our skills and knowledge?

Have been unable to work for 20 years due to injury & I have found it really hard to not work. If you want to work then do so because retirement is not all it's cracked up to be unless you can fund it yourself.

Why retire when you are enjoying yourself. Retirement means you work harder.

Retire when you want too. I would love to retire now at 30, but I am not financially able too.

Of course. If you are financially able to stop work you can stop at any time of your life. There are people who are part of the F.I.R.E. movement who "retire" in their 20s, 30s & 40s.

People should be allowed to retire when they when they want to, even if they can afford to earlier. Not only does it allow them to feel needed, it helps younger people learn from their experience. I only wish I had the choice to retire sometime before I keel over at my desk!
