Was the study normalized for health? For instance, was the health of the group who retired early the same as the group who retired later.

If the group who retired early had more health challenges than those who continued to work then the study could be biased.

A very important point. It doesn't look like it was normalized for health. From the abstract

Healthy retirees (n=1934) were defined as individuals who self-reported health was not an important reason to retire.

Agree with the others. Those who choose to work in Their 70s and beyond are by default, pretty healthy or they would not be able to do it. Some stop younger for health reasons or knowing their family history does not favor long lives.

90 yr olds

I used to socially drink coffee with a group of retired fellows. 3 were in mid 90's. 1-very engaged, always had projects. Other 2 read financial newspapers. All 3 retired early.
Sidebar-their best advice for living long...eat fruit daily, and if a problem comes up, get to the doc rt away. New hips, knees...so what, lifes a bitch, live it!
Oh yes, were sexually active also. Didnt brag it, but had some function.
