Working Past Retirement Improves Health

People often dream about the day they hit retirement, officially marking the end of their workdays. It’s then they can relax, enjoy life and get to that bucket list.

But more and more people are starting to put off the R word – and with good reason. Recent studies are showing that working beyond 65 can bring a person social, economic and health benefits. Evidence shows that there’s a strong correlation between health and working longer.

Research done at Oregon State University demonstrated that continuing to work can lead to a longer life, while retiring earlier may be a risk factor that can lead to an earlier death.

And if you aren’t interested in working past retirement because you don’t like your job, you can either work part time or maybe even try a new line of work.

Sometimes, even the benefits a person is receiving at their work may be a big factor as to why they would want to continue working through retirement. Working longer keeps you engaged with co-workers and this can benefit an individual in both physical and mental ways. In the end, people gain benefits from staying active and engaged and because of that, they should postpone their retirement.
