Do you know what the average age of retirement is in America? Or, which celebrities are turning 65 next year? Well, let's see if you know more about retirement than a recent Today Show audience.

I was invited to be on Today with Kathie Lee & Hoda, helping out with their weekly segment, "Who Knew?" I guess they assumed I'd know a lot about the topic -- retirement -- given that I write a weekly column and host a web series for AARP.

Even so, the trivia questions were pretty tricky! But, maybe you know more about retirement than the Today Show audience, so check out the segment (below) and see if you can come up with the answers to questions like:

  • Of these four celebrities, which one is not turning 65 next year?
  • Jack Nicholson plays a character who is facing retirement in which film?
  • What's the current average age of retirement in America?
  • Which of these musical acts has never signaled an intention to retire with a "Farewell Tour"?

...and more!

Watch the segment to get to the questions (and answers!):

And remember this: We can't control getting older . . . but . . . we can control how we do it!
