 Retirement isn’t what it used to be, an assessment that could be drawn from a new UK survey that shows more than half of Britons planning to retire this year would consider continuing to work past their state pension age.

In fact, many already are, reports the Belfast Telegraph.
According to a recent Prudential survey, 51 per cent of possible retirees are going to continue working, or would at least consider it. It’s the fifth year in a row the survey has indicated more than half of Britons set to retire have work plans or considerations in their future.
“Staying in work for longer can make a significant difference not only to someone’s income but also their physical and mental health,” Minister for Employment Damian Hinds is quoted saying. “Older workers also have a huge amount to offer employers.”
More: More than a quarter would consider working fewer hours with current employer.
