Study: Early Retirement Doesn’t Affect Lifespan
Study: Early Retirement Doesn’t Affect Lifespan

A new study finds that your retirement age has no impact on your relative life expectancy. Researchers studied data from Norway over a 20-year period, during which changes in pension arrangements allowed a significant number of people to stop work at 62 instead of 67, the country’s official pension age.

They found that there was no link between the age at which someone retired and that at which they die. However, it was found that people who retire early might be more prone to dementia due to the lack of mental simulation, which they would normally have gotten from work.
