Went to a site visit at one of my company’s plants and saw a familiar face.
Bob retired 10 years ago,
but he is back now working as a new employee at age 70.
My retirement plan is drinking and smoking.
I don’t intend to make it to 80.
My dad retired on his 80th birthday in 1982.
Packed up his desk and walked out stating this game is getting too rough for me!
Anyone who imagines they can retire with $25K in the bank is delusional.
As long as you have your wits about you, and your health, I think this isn’t such a bad thing. It’s gets people out of the house, gives a sense of purpose, etc etc.
I always thought the time to “retire” was when you’re young and energetic enough to travel and learn about life.
Wells Fargo bank is a pollster now? Zero has screwed the pooch for most people's retirement accounts, but $25,000 is much lower than the Pew numbers.
It’s hard to hang on to a job anytime in the Oconomy, but it gets worse after 50 years of age.
People aren’t all rushing to retire at 60 or 62 - many are forced into it by companies phasing out seniors and others are left standing by companies moving offshore.
Both political parties have been onboard the “free trade train” for the last 50 years.
Year in and year out we hear how wonderful the next free trade agreement will be for us. Yet more and more jobs move offshore as soon as the newest free trade agreement is signed.
Politicians keep trying to engineer the econmomy for the benefit of other countries. We need a government that puts America and Americans first. It has been many years since that has happened.
Americans said ———
Really what Americans?
I’m not planning on working til I die, even though Obama and the Democrats plan it for me...
The government is putting this bull sh*t out.
Retire at 80 and die one day later...
54 was the “new 65” for me. Retired 12 years, now 66 years old and loving every minute of it.
We do what we can do regarding retirement because we can do it. I retired at 57, worked off and on for other companies in the industry because I wanted to do so and because they wanted my experience. During that part of my retirement I managed a plant with 150 employees for a couple years.
We now live in a 6500 sq ft home (bought 9 years ago) on 5 1/2 acres (with horses), recently appraised at $650,000...we have no mortgage payment and no credit card debt, and we have an annual retirement income in excess of $50,000.
We do what we want when we want to do it. We also help others in various ways, including financial. And I consult with people on alternative health care matters. I am only 4 years away from that 80 mark, and have no intention of slowing down. Also have no intention of working for other people. We like retirement, and one thing we do not do is watch TV - our choice is no TV connectivity in our home.
God is good, and we thank Him for providing for us.
Gotta work longer to support the bums, deadbeats, and parasites who comprise the Democrat party “base”.
This is what happens to a nation that abandons the biblical model for retirement.
No surprise as many predicted that we would come to this point.
you know, the desk sitters and that type can work to 100 for all I care.....when you do actually hard, difficult and emotionally and physically taxing work, you can’t work til 80...
People from 20 to 70+ earning 25-100K have saved a median amount of $25,000 towards retirement?
That means exactly nothing.
Life expectancy was 60 when Franklin Delano Rat-bastard forced SS upon the nation. That’s why the age of retirement was set at 62. The bastard played no different than Bugsy Siegel.
