Part 2: Preparing for Retirement - Do you plan to work?
Then there are those who have a choice between working and being broke. I'd work too in that situation. NPR is doing a series on working in retirement years and this is the latest article -When a bad economy means working forever.
It is interesting that even this person talks about the non-financial benefits of working - being around people, continuing to learn, etc. I'd like those things but I don't want to be tied to a work schedule right now. Perhaps when seeing family members no longer requires travel across the country I'll be more interested. I would like the other benefits though and am looking for ways to build them into my life along with more structure to my days.
Do you expect to work for pay after retirement age either because you want to or because you will need the income?
