PBS also gives you the opportunity to weigh in on your expectations, et al.

I'm 70 and retired. I retired for ethical reasons. I was a supervisor on WarmLine connected with Crisis Line,
Rules were put in, not my company's fault, which had to be enforced. These rules were against my ethics.
Do I quit now or at the end of the shift?

I have a little more than I need.

I don't want to take a job away from someone with a family or who needs it more than I do,

I love my simple life. Course I work harder and more hours with Care2. Let's see, it's 2:27 in the a,m,

In the past, I read about how older people in certain cultures go away to be alone and prepare to cross over,
The idea inspired me and still does.

What better way to prepare to cross over than to live a simple life, have time to communicate with Creator and fill many and many an hour with do gooding in group?

Thank you Care2.

You are welcome Terry.
You cannot currently send a star to Zee, Terry or Fi because you have done so within the last day.

Those graphics should be a wake up call. Retirement is thought to be a time when costly things are in the past, and stress is nothing more than deciding where or when to travel. I think that might be a false image from commercials, very few are able to afford travel or not working after 65 or 70. Social Security should have been doubled up in the 60's when the boomers became a part of the work force in anticipation of paying for more retirees that needed more money to just live.

I know, hide-sight is 20-20 but isn't that way we pay economists?

unfortunately the senior years are not something to look forward to for many of us, even for those of us who tried to do all the "right" things to prepare.

I doubt I will completely retire anytime soon. I did the "right" things to prepare but like the saying goes Man Plans and God Laughs.

Due to a combination of hard work, planning, and
a bit of luck, I was able to retire at age 52 and
moved with my wife to Mazatlan. That was 11 years
ago. Wish everyone had the "option" to do what I
was able. Best wishes to all.

Interesting information. I agreewith Bill and Kate, that people need to keep up with their state's Social Secuity, mainly due to the fact that they are always stating that changes have been made every year. Thanks JL
