Career Reinventions and the New Retirement Workscape
According to the latest retirement study by Merrill Lynch “Retirement used to mean the end of work. But now we’re at a tipping point: a majority of people will be continuing to work after they retire — often in new and different ways. Nearly half (47%) of today’s retirees say they either have worked or plan to work during their retirement. But an even greater percentage (72%) of pre–retirees age 50+ say they want to keep working after they retire, and in the near future it will become increasingly unusual for retirees not to work.”
