Retire at 65--Die in Two Years

Well I've never heard anything like this before:

https://www.biznews.com/thought-lead...s-older-bodies

Retire at 65, die within two years. Retire younger, live to 80.

Posting to see what you folks think.

The “Boeing study” appears to be an internet fiction, per this 2012 BBC article: https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-18952037

I think the obvious conclusion is that you can live forever if you never work at all.

The secondary conclusion is that anyone who is forced to work until 70 can be expected to be found dead at work at least 2 years after actually expiring.
