Seniors feelings towards retirement are changing

In the early 1900’s, most people worked pretty much as long as they were able.  Then with the advent of employer retirement plans and Social Security benefits, attitudes shifted to thinking about a future where working stopped and an earned life of leisure began, and over time the traditional retirement age – the age that most people targeted to stop working – became between 62 and 65.  Now, as seniors generally find themselves living longer and healthier lives, working past that traditional retirement age seems to once again be attractive to many.  And it’s not just for economic reasons; many people in their sixties simply aren’t ready to stop using the talents and experience they’ve spent a lifetime developing.  This Merrimack Valley Eagle-Tribune article by John Spoto explores the new attitude towards continuing to work even past when you’re financially able to retire.  Click here to read more.
