It seems like more and more Americans can’t get enough of work, whether it’s for enjoyment or necessity.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that by 2028, about 23% of people age 65 or older will be in the workforce.
Money Talks News even points out some signs that might mean it’s time to get back into the workforce in “8 Signs That You Should Leave Retirement.”
Provision Living, which operates senior living communities in three states, recently sought to find out why seniors continue to work. It surveyed more than 1,000 people between age 65 and 85 who work full- or part-time.
The responses indicated that 62% of these folks work for financial reasons while 38% work for personal reasons.
Following is a closer look at the findings. The percentages we report indicate the share of all surveyed seniors who cited a particular reason.
