Work
Some folks will find that they need to work because their retirement savings isn't enough to cover their expected needs over the rest of their lives. Some will work because they simply want a new career - something new and exciting to do with their life, that the job from they 'retired' didn't provide.

Regardless of the reasons for choosing to work, there are lots of things a person can do in retirement - particularly work which would not have covered the retiree's previous lifestyle, but which are adequate as income to supplement retirement savings or which will simply add enjoyment to the retiree's life.

Since the retiree has already quit a full time position to go into retirement, the focus of this page will be on part-time work opportunities.

Or, you may worked for someone before retirement and now you swear you'll never do that again! Either way, you've decided that self-employment fits your retirement goals.
