Early Retirement Often Unplanned

"Nearly half of today's retirees retired earlier than planned, and of those who did, 41% did so because of unexpected health problems and 19% due to loss of employment. 37% retired earlier than planned because they had sufficient financial resources to retire," according to a 2011 poll of adults aged 55 and older.
