SURVEY SAYS: How old is the oldest person you know?

May 1, 2014 ( – I was encouraged by results of a survey of individuals who have reached age 100 that we covered this week.

The survey found 9% of Centenarians express the most fondness for ages 70 and up, and 3% say the best time in their life is now. Both Centenarians and Baby Boomers feel younger than their age (see “Retirement Could Be the Best Time in Your Life”).

This week, I’d like to know, how old is the oldest person you know or have known, and what lessons have you learned from them about aging and retirement?

You may respond to this week’s survey by 6 p.m. Pacific time today at
