Working: The New Fountain of Youth

As baby boomers near retirement, more and more are seeking a second “retirement” career.  Based on an April Gallup survey of 534 working people,

  • 18% said they would work full-time, with one-third of those saying they would do so because they wanted to do so (not because they had to financially);
  • 63% said they would work part-time, with almost two-thirds of those saying they would do so because they wanted to do so; and
  • 18% said they would retire and stop working altogether

With responses like that, it’s not surprising that AARP has also determined that the number of people who work because they want to work has increased substantially in the 65+ year old category.  If you plan on working during your retirement years, there are several factors you should take into consideration, not the least of which is to make sure you choose a job you will enjoy.
