In brief: EARLY RETIREMENT MAY
Mean earlier death, particularly for those 60 and younger, based on a study done on thousands of employees who worked at shell oil company.
In essence, retiring by 55 doubled your risk of dying by age 65, compared with those who retired after age 60... So keep at it you young whipper snapper!
