    Will you be able to retire?

    More and more seniors are forced back into the work force because they do not have enough money to retire.

    I certainly won't be able to retire. The latest estimate for eligibility for a state pension in the UK for person of my age is 67. I don't have, and have never been able to afford to contribute to a private pension scheme so I'm still looking towards a long working life yet. Whether there will be jobs available to me in my 60's, or even whether I'll be able to work, is definitely a worrying thought.

      Does retiring mean that you get to work for fun? Or does it mean you no longer work?

      'Retiring' to me means to be financially comfortable without having to work. Being able to do the litle things you always wanted to do on a daily basis. Maybe play golf, maybe take a day trip somewhere nice. Basically no 9 - 5.

    To retire  (not having to work) is something that seems to only be a fantasy for many people. Yet, the governments of many countries speak of prosperity and increased job market etc. I do not know from where they get the numbers, but many people I know can not find work because more elderly are staying in or going back into the workforce. Yet, our politicians get bloated paycheques and can live on a golden government pension after only working for a few years. It is disgusting.

    This is just sad. Normally, when people reaches the age of 50, saving up becomes a necessity. They start to consider cities and states where it is best to retire. When 60 is here, it is inevitable that our bodies grow significantly weaker preventing us to work productively. It is just sad that there are still senior people working until they've ran out of breath. No one can really blame.
