What are your rights from 65?
Perhaps the most obvious benefit of working past the golden 65, is the extra income that can be earned. Working part-time or starting a small business can provide much-needed extra income, which can be used to cover expenses or pad your savings.
Further to this retirement may be lonely, and working can provide much-needed social interaction. Whether you’re interacting with customers or co-workers, working can help you feel connected and engaged.
Purpose and Identity
Retirement can be a time of transition, and many people struggle with a loss of purpose. For many people their job is their identity, firefighter, teacher, lawyer. Continuing to add value in their fields whether by consulting or mentoring.
The mental stimulation can also help you stay sharp and engaged.
Be careful not to miss out on the good times
If you’re working too much, you may not have time to enjoy your prime years. It can also interfere with your plans for travel or leisure activities. If you find yourself working more than you’d like, it may be time to reconsider your retirement plans.
