Fact vs. Fiction Archive

Fiction: Once you reach retirement age, youíll be done working for the rest of your life.

Fact: Americans of retirement age opt to stay in the working world for many reasons, including a desire for a part-time career or to start their own companies. Many of us are living longer and taking better care of ourselves, and we donít feel like slowing down. In today's world, retirement can last 20 years or more, so we want something meaningful to do during that time. For some people, however, working into their retirement years may not be a matter of choice. They may need to keep working to add to their savings, keep their insurance coverage, or attain their maximum social security benefits.
