I chose after 40 but my true answer would never work after 60 because right now I  am  a nurse and love it. Before nursing I was a soldier for 24 years. Both jobs I have truly enjoyed,  just wish I  knew these saving tips when I first started working.

I am only commenting here to say THANKS for serving!  

Forty years to figure things out without worrying about finances sounds good to me.  I would think by the time I HAD TO work, I would be working smart (investing, etc.) and not hard at all.

I retired at 40 and now ten years later I have picked up a few part time jobs to supplement my monthly income. I have come to have many health issues that would have prevented me from working in to my 50's so I am glad that I had an awesome career before 40 and raised my family at high standards. I ended up losing everything thru family tragedy and emotional breakdown as a result. So I live a modest life now but have all I need and usually what I want to get. I think people should be able to retire in their 50's peoples health and bodies are not equipped to be working hard well into your late 60's.

This is a tough one for me, because if I am not working on something, I get bored easily.

But I would definitely rather spend my younger younger years working hard out of necessity and then spend the later ones working on things I am passionate about.

I agree whole heartedly 

My body voted for not working after 40.  There was so much more that I could do when I was younger.  Life takes a toll on your body that someone who is young cannot understand.

I believe in working hard and i think any young adult needs that especially when you just come out of college.  By a house and get settled, however by the time you hit forty it would be nice to be able to get out of the rat race and smell the roses, experience life.

Same here. I am set to retire (hopefully) the end of this year or a few months into 2020. But then that's it.
