7 out of 10 Americans plan to work in retirement

September 13, 2016  · 1 min read

A new study by Bankrate has found that a stunning 75 per cent of Americans say they plan to work "as long as possible" in retirement - and not because they love their jobs. Only 40 per cent say they plan to continue working because they want to, while 35 per cent say they plan to work out of financial necessity.


"Working during retirement brings a lot of benefits," says Jill Cornfield, a retirement analyst for Bankrate. "I’m not surprised that nearly three quarters of people said they’d like to work as long as they can while in retirement. It’s not just the money. When you can work as a consultant or find some part-time gig, it really helps you stay sharp."


IFA's Expertfile is home to a number of top international experts on retirement and older workers, all of whom are available for media comment and speaking opportunities on this pressing issue.
