Depression and early retirement

A study of 3,000 people between the ages of 53 and 58 in the U.S., carried out by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania has found that middle-aged men with symptoms of depression are more likely to take early retirement than other people, while middle-aged women with even mild symptoms were more likely to retire early. The study will appear in the journal Health Services Research in the autumn.
