Well, I’ve done a little searching, and according to this study, the older you retire the shorter you live:

Longevity Vs. Retirement Age
“Dr. Ephrem (Siao Chung) Cheng provided the important results in the
following table from an actuarial study of life span vs. age at
retirement. The study was based on the number of pension checks sent
to retirees of Boeing Aerospace.“

Age at Retirement Average Age at Death
49.9-— 86.0
51.2-— 85.3
52.5-— 84.6
53.8-— 83.9
55.1-— 83.2
56.4-— 82.5
57.2-— 81.4
58.3-— 80.0
59.2-— 78.5
60.1-— 76.8
61.0-— 74.5
62.1-— 71.8
63.1-— 69.3
64.1-— 67.9
65.2-— 66.8

“This indicates that for people retired at the age of 50, their
average life span is 86; whereas for people retired at the age of 65,
their average life span is only 66.8. An important conclusion from
this study is that for every year one works beyond age 55, one loses 2
years of life span on average.”

So, maybe if you are over 65, the average person DOES die within 6 months...

Does this mean that if you retire after 65, that, on average you die before you retire? That sure looks the way it’s trending. BTW, I’m 62 and I would like to work until I’m seventy, but extrapolating from you table, that means, I’ll die two years ago.
