I hope they don't also increase the age limits for senior privileges like golden age passport, etc., ..... I want my half-price camping!!!
This got me thinking. Here are my ten closest freinds (in my age bracket) with ages, marital status and ER status/or employment.
Farmer, 62, married works full time.
Dentist, 68, married, retired at 62 but now works more than half time.
Realtor, 69, married, works full time.
Small biz owner, 69, married, works part time.
Small biz owner, 62, married, works part time.
RN, 60, widow, works full time.
Teacher 59, married, works full time.
Lawyer/businessman, 69, divorced, works full time.
Small co. President, 62, works full time.
Sales exec, 60, married, works full time.
Based on this group my situation is still pretty unusual. I might add
that most of my "acquantances" who would fall into this list also
have gone back to work after they retired, at least for a while.
I did go back for 2 years but it still appears that I am the anomaly.
