    If you are under 50 and have not started planning your retirement without government assistance then slap your parents for not teaching you anything.

      I don't think that what we regard as retirement now is in my future or that of a lot of people around my age or younger.  I suspect I'll be needing to work in some way right up until I die.

      This is a pipe-dream. That you can retire without government help.

      All 4 of my grandparents lived to their 90's. There is simply no way that I can accumulate enough in my 40 working years to save up enough to last 30 years of retirement, when you consider that a good 25 of those working years are spent raising my children.
