BENEFITS OF WORKING IN RETIREMENT
In the past, retirement has been portrayed as an ending, a grand exit from your years in the workplace. But the rules are shifting.

Labor force participation among those aged 65-74 is predicted to reach 32 percent by 2022, up from just 20 percent in 2002. As the Boomer generation ages, more people are viewing retirement as an opportunity to enjoy the rewards of work in a whole new way.
