What is the best age for retirement?

Obviously this will be different for different people. Health and occupation will also influence your answers. So lots of comments expected.

Don't wait too long! 60 is perfect if you can. Plan for it.

As soon as you can financially. I did at 45 I was very lucky & able to enjoy my life without any work pressure for over 20yrs now. Hopefully still a lot more years to go...

Wow. That is only 60% of the way through a normal lifespan. So how have you been enjoying your retirement?

Life expectancy in Australia has improved dramatically for both sexes in the last century, particularly life expectancy at birth. Compared with their counterparts in 1881–1890, boys and girls born in 2015–2017 can expect to live around 33 and 34 years longer, respectively. In Australia, a boy born in 2015–2017 can expect to live to the age of 80.5 years

The retirement age was 60, until the liberal party saw fit to change it to 65. I personally think it should’ve never changed . It should’ve stayed at 60

The sooner the better. Whenever you are financially free. Technically there is no such thing as retirement as you still need to be doing something. Its just better to be free to do the things you want and still have money coming in.

I expected to get a variety of responses here. As 50 is good for some people, 75 is good for some. Most will fall between these 2. People who work mentally are more inclined to the later time and people who work physically more to the earlier. But nothing seems fixed. It is good that we have choice.
