I may get a short contract to work in Singapore. Is there an upper age limit? :o

Are you still breathing? Technically no there is no limit. My warehouse supervisor resigned to look after his cancer stricken wife last year. He was 79. I told him if he finds he can return to work, he still has a job.

On the flip side, most over 45 who find themselves retrenched are in deep brown stuff. But, if one is flexible, there are no limits. - technically (mindsets are a different matter)!

Thanks for that - I suppose as long as I can drag myself into the office for 6 months, that's all that matters. :?

If you are working for the government do they ease you into retirement at 62? Or if you are in an occupation in which they have shortages, like teachers, will they let you stay on?
