1. It starts much earlier than age 55.
I was burned out in my career at age 35, and I started doing it at age 22.

"Ms. Coile and Mr. Levine's research indicates that many of those who retire for lack of work are less educated, earned lower incomes and were less likely to have investments or other sources of income,"

Not true in my case. Duh, I retired early from lack of work. I have not had a job of any kind in years. The last temporary job I had was at a large teaching hospital where I was employed for all of nine days before I got canned for violating rules they did not tell me about. I was also trying to save the client time and money, so that was a mortal sin. That was in July of 2001.

I have three degrees (incl. BA Biology, JD in Law). I earned a high income when I was a court reporter but the stress was killing me. I do own a bit of real estate, so I just blew the average conclusions of the above sentence.
