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.” Even when many people move into senior living living communities, they choose to keep working in many instances.
