Are you thinking about re-entering the workforce in your 60s? Even after making a carefully considered decision to retire?
The reality is that you are not alone. An increasing number of baby boomers are shifting gears and reversing their decision to retire.
Consider the following from a New York Times article that compiled survey data on changes in American’s attitudes toward retirement:
- More than 25 percent of retirees later resumed working
- 40 percent of workers over age 65 had previously retired
- The number of people over age 65 who are employed either full-time or part-time has climbed from 12.8 percent in 2000 to 18.8 percent in 2016
