My ideal retirement age is about 25.
Retirement at age 65 is no longer the goal for most working Americans. In 2010, for the first time, more Americans said they planned to retire after age 65 than before it, and since then the gap has widened, according to a recent Gallup survey of more than 2,000 U.S. adults, including 636 retirees. More than a third (37 percent) of workers say they expect to retire after 65, up significantly from 14 percent in 1995.
Only about a quarter (26 percent) of employees are still aiming to retire at 65. Another quarter (26 percent) of adults are hoping to retire before age 65, down from 49 percent in 1995.
