No one should stop working at any age.
After retirement everyone has to keep himself busy with some work or other.

Sai Ram. Retirement should be based on one's physical and mental condition. The age rule of 58, 60, 62 etc. being applied in many organizations is arbitrary, mainly because they cannot retire people earlier though they are not fit. I had to retire at 60 though I was quite fit mentally and physically. All my knowledge and experience that can be used for nation building (I was working in a department that is doing critical work) is now idling. I am still hoping that I will get some opportunity as a consultant to contribute. Money is not an issue in such cases.

Although government as well as companies have fixed different retirement ages for their employees e.g. 58, 60, 62, I strongly believe that age in itself does not determine whether one continues or stops working. Working or stopping to work depends on health and physical fitness of each individual. Many persons who have retired on superannuation, are still working, many a times better than those who are young.

Much depends on person's fitness and there is no age at which he should stop working. He or she stops working because he is stopped working due to retirement.

A person should work as long as he is physically capable of working. Though the objective and type of work may vary with age and financial condition. I have seen people working at the age of 84+. Work makes a person feel good and worthy. It is a great motivator to them for living life to the fullest. It makes them more cheerful and happy.

It depends on the person and what type of job he/she is doing. If it's a government job then there's retirement time already fixed for it. Depending on one's need and caliber to carry on the job either he/she can work until retirement time or take VRS. It totally depends on how stronger you feel to carry on the job as you age. Jobs demanding manual or physical labor are really cumbersome and people might want to retire at the age of 50's. End of the day all that matter is how much healthy you keep yourself and how much balanced are you in your professional and personal life. So there isn't any fixed time to decide on when to stop working.
