A recent research finds that men who retire early from their job are no more set to die sooner.
Lead Australian author John Piggott and researchers from Norway took advantage of a 'natural experiment.'
In 1989, Norway introduced an early retirement program, which covered some firms and not others.
About half its private sector workers cut the minimum age for access to retirement benefits from 67 to 62.
But the others did not and after many years, the data has shown no statistically significant difference in death rates up to the age of 70.
