"I'll be retiring at the end of the month. My wife asked if I'm 100% certain we'd have enough to retire on. I told her the only way to be 100% certain would be to work until you die. I also told her I'm comfortable with a 99% certainty with the only uncertainty being we might not keep up with inflation 20 years down the road. If she still has doubts, I'm willing to let her work as long as she wants."

Have a rec! This is so perfect! I have printed this out and am tucking it into a card for my husband - we're both 66 and still working and this is a question I ask him all the time!! Hahhahaha - perfect response and one I'm sure he'll keep handy!!

Thanks!
Kat (if the shoe fits....)
