Apparently working yourself to death is the exact opposite of what happens.  Data collected by the U.S. Census found that people who choose early retirement had a 20% higher mortality risk than those who stay in the workforce longer.  Those who retired at 62 appeared to shorten their life expectancy compared to those who retire at 65. It echoes another study that found that those who work past age 65 could add more years to their life. Even for those who are considered unhealthy, working another year longer had a nine percent lower mortality risk than those retiring early. They concluded that early retirement 'may have an immediate, negative impact' on health.
