The retirement age in the U.S. is up by four years since 1991, to an average age of 61, according to a new report from Gallup.
The report blames the rising retirement age on an increased lifespan and a higher cost of living.
However, most physicians appear to retire even later. According to a report from AMA Insurance, a subsidiary of the American Medical Association, the largest percentage of physicians retire between the ages of 65 and 70.
Retirement age for physicians:
Before 60: 12 percent
Between 60 and 65: 29 percent
Between 65 and 70: 31 percent
Between 71 and 75: 13 percent
After 75: 14 percent
