as Norm says, there should be no retirement age at all. I am a baby boomer aged 55, and at present if my employer wants me to retire when I am 65 I cannot refuse to do so. I hope that has changed by then. If I, or anyone else, is competent and has the physical health to do the job they are doing they should not be kicked out because of their age. Also as Norm points out, there are sound economic reasons for abolishing retirement age, which might help the argument in the coming years. I hope so.
