Early retirement increase death risk in men, says study
A new study has found that early retirement can cause an increased risk of death.
The study found that people who opted for an early retirement had more chance of dying earlier as compared to people who chose to continue working for more years.
There was a 20-per-cent increase in the mortality rate in men who retired at the age of 62 years.
The study also found a link between mental health and retirement.
It claims that mental health and physical health in men and women are affected differently after they retire.
Men are more dependent on their jobs for remaining active and lose interest in their daily routines once they retire.
The lack of work can have a negative impact on their wellbeing, causing health issues.
