A study from England shows that most people only work ten years in good health after 50. That's for the average people (with or without Chron's Disease). See the link below:https://www.yahoo.com/news/retirement-age-increasing-study-reveals-121756140.html
I am in my 50s and have long standing Chron's Disease. I feel there is one day I have no choice but to stop working, either retire or claim social security. I think people need to prepare for the unexpected, to prepare for the time when there are no paychecks coming in.
