What is the average age of retirement in the U.S.?

  • 55
  • 62 correct

    U.S. News took a poll of Americans asking them when they see themselves retiring and then took another poll to find out when it is they actually retire. Most Americans aim for 66 to be their golden retirement age, but they actually kick the career can over at about 62 - once they realize they actually have figured out that 401k thing. Time to buy yourself a Corvette and head on down to Florida, you silver foxes! Source: U.S. News
