Early Retirement

Retirement before the normal age, which is generally between 55 and 65. Early retirement may occur because a person attains financial security for the remainder of his/her life before most of his/her peers. Unfortunately, it may also occur due to injury or inability to work in one's field. People in early retirement may qualify for pension or government benefits, but generally they are less than those who retire at full age.
