In my experience, 40 just swings on by; 50 also, FWIW (although now that I am in my 50s, I find I’m wasting my time putting in job applications for tech positions, so okay, some suck involved). So I’m not sweating 60. OTOH, 65 (Medicare) and 66.5 (Social Security full benefit) seem much more worth sweating over, if only for the paperwork.
