As the average age of humans gets longer, the age for retirement can plausibly be pushed back. I feel that if a person can be a contributing member of the workforce for longer, then they should do so. This would also allow more money to be saved by people that retire later in life, allowing for their retirement to be easier.
I believe that the retirement age should not be extended. I really think that the present retirement
age is old enough. Think of all of the
people that pay into social security all of their lives and then die before
they are even able to collect even a penny in benefits.
