The short answer: You can retire when you want to leave the workforce and can afford to do so. However, in reality, people may have many constraints on when they can leave the workforce. For instance, some employees may have to work 20 or 30 years to be eligible to receive a company pension. Those who need Social Security to retire can’t begin collecting benefits until age 62 at the earliest. And Medicare doesn’t begin until age 65, meaning workers who receive health insurance through an employer may wait until then to retire.
