63 and everyone in our non-retirement condo is almost exactly the same...
Retired 3 1/2 years.

54, but my DH is 57 and retired at 51 - I think that's when I joined this Retirement forum. I will be retiring at/around 62.

I was "officially retired " via medical (SSDI) at age 40, so i have felt reasonable able to reply here, though i understand tge younguns here looking for retirement advice. I wish i had had such a place to ask questions and see results when i wasin my 20s.

I attempted to work part time (allowed), but that didnt work out so well, ( standing for an 8 hour shift is rough with a bad back, hips and knees), still looking, preferably for a sit down job. I do have experience as an administrative Assistant, but that's at least 2 decades old, and times, they are a changin'.
Id like to be a medical office secretary. May have to go back to college for medical coding.

Thats all thats new with me.

Have i satisfied OP s curiosity???

I'm 53, will be 54 in early March. Had to stop working at 36 due to my back. I was officially medically retired (SSDI) in 2006 right before I had rods and screws added to my 1st fusion.

My hub is 60; looking to retire or change jobs

Turned 70 this year, came on fast as a previous poster said.
Wore many hats through the years, for the past two years, I maintain our large homestead in western NC; mainly grounds work; landscaping, bush hog/tractor work, keeping our long driveway up the mountain maintained, I determine what job is important, and go at it for a couple/few hours 7days a week, weather permitting...having fun, staying active, not killing myself.

I will be 59 next year and my husband will be 62. No plans to retire prior to 65. We both love our jobs and make good money and plan to keep taking vacations to places abroad we want to visit while we are working and healthy!
