It’s called retirement for a reason


Don’t bank on working in retirement even part time to fund your lifestyle—or to provide you with intellectual stimulation. That’s the takeaway message from a new Consumers Report survey of 24,000 U.S. adults aged 55 to 75. While the vast majority of respondents nearing retirement said they expected to continue working in some capacity, only about one-quarter of those who were already retired actually did it. In fact, 83% of retired respondents said they never wanted to work again.
