Studies show retirees should continue to work

Working after retirement keeps you healthly
Working after retirement keeps you healthy

We’ve all heard the notion that it’s best to keep busy as you grow older, but now a massive study conducted by the University of Miami offers proof, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens.

Researchers studied data on more than 83,000 seniors over a period of 14 years and found that those who were idle in retirement were not as healthy as those who worked to one degree or another.  In fact, those with demanding jobs were among the healthiest.
The research report concluded that: “Older adults who continue working tend to be much healthier across multiple health outcomes, but perhaps providing better workplace accommodations for older adults with functional limitations would allow more of them to join the ranks of their healthier peers.”
