85 the new 55

Ever heard of shifting retirement ages? It is likely to happen now that the global economic recession is officially declared. I and colleagues in the workplace are wondering whether our retirement will come close to 60 or will it stretch to the 90's. LOL...we are going to see us wobbling with our laptops and our walking sticks as well. The proverbial nest eggs are shrinking and the prospects of Riviera style holidays are fast fading. Well meaning people are asking us to plan resources to get us to age 100...and prepare to work until 98??
