    Welcome to the forum. Remember to capitalise the first word of every sentence and the word "I" (first person singular).

    The correct sentence is "I will retire when I am 60". Study the use of the present tense to indicate the future in your grammar book.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
