At what age do NFL players start drawing their pensions?

— Ed Johnson, Panama City Beach, Fla.

Players start collecting their pensions at age 55. To qualify, they must be credited for three full seasons (four for players before 1992). A full season is defined as being on the active roster (or on injured reserve or the physically unable to perform list) in three games.
