ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the retirement of U.S. citizens. Surveys show that nearly 30 percent of men aged 65 to 69 are still working. Twenty percent of women in the same age bracket are still working, instead of the expected 15 percent. Three-quarters of workers aged 51 to 61 plan to continue working beyond regular retirement age. Eleven percent of people aged 30 to 59 expect to work past age 70.
