Retirement Is Bad For Your Health

A new UK study claims retirement is bad for your health and increases the likelihood of depression.

The Institute of Economic Affairs says people are retiring earlier but living longer.

The think-tank used data collected from eleven European countries and says it found the adverse effects of retirement increase with the more time someone is retired.

The study says retirement decreases the likelihood a person will assess their health as very good or excellent by 39%.
