“A new AARP national survey shows that 20% of 50+ workers say they looked for a new job in the last year, and a whopping 35 percent say that they will either “very likely” (18 percent) or “somewhat likely” (17 percent) look for a new position in the next three years”.

This is some evidence that waiting until 65 until you retire increases your life expectancy.

Here are a couple of links to sites that give advice on how to find work when you are retired and links to sites that target jobs for older people.

  • The AARP Work and Jobs website provides insights and tools to help maximize mature workers’ career potential. AARP members and non-members alike can access the information free, and search and apply for jobs for free, although those who wish to create a searchable profile for employers and post a resume will be asked to register on the AARP Job Board
