- Retirees can often find great part-time jobs during the summer months, especially if they live in a resort area or tourist town. However, fun summer jobs can be found around the country at local amusement parks, hotels, campgrounds and other vacation getaways. Here are eight ideas to get you started.
- Heading into your retirement years doesn't have to mean the end of making money. Finding a way to earn some money through your favorite hobby can help you ease into retirement gradually and spend a little less of your hard-earned nest egg. It can also be a great way to stay active while pursuing a true passion. Here are just a few hobbies which can make you money during your retirement years.
- After retirement, many active adults start looking for a way to earn some extra income with a flexible job, or even branch out into a second career. Having a computer and reliable Internet connection makes it easy to work from home in a wide range of fields.
- While retirees may no longer work full-time jobs, they may be in a great position to volunteer their time to support our troops, military families and veterans. Diverse volunteer opportunities let retirees use their own skills and resources to help in the ways they find best. From sending care packages overseas to fostering the pets of deployed soldiers, there are many different ways to actively support our troops.
- While 55+ communities are often viewed as great retirement destinations, many residents in these communities do continue to work full or part-time jobs. Instead of being strictly focused on leisure activities, today’s active adult communities must keep up with working Baby Boomers by offering appealing amenities such as business centers, Internet cafes and thoughtfully designed floor plans with space for home offices.
- Retirement doesn’t have to mean the end of working. Many retirees find that they enjoy working part time, either in their previous field or through new opportunities. Part-time jobs let retirees earn extra income, stay active and contribute their years of knowledge and experience.
- While younger adults may dream of one day retiring to a life of leisure, many older adults are realizing that there are many benefits to putting off retirement or never retiring at all. Continuing a career during your retirement years can provide a sense of purpose, offer health benefits and help maintain financial security.
- With the combination of a tough economy and increasing longevity, many adults find themselves looking for work-life balance even after they’ve officially retired. That’s because a modern retirement doesn’t necessarily mean the end of working. Many retirees continue to work part-time or even full-time jobs to earn extra income, meet new people or find personal fulfillment.
