Should I get a job after retirement?

Retirement is a glorious time that we look forward to our whole lives. Should I get  a job after retireing? However, with retirement comes a lot of extra time on our hands; sometimes we don't know what to do with it. We may realize we weren't as ready to retire from working as we thought we were. Some retirees decide to get a part-time job to fill in their time.

Retirees decide to go back to work for many different reasons, such as boredom, extra income, a need to be around people or to be needed in general.

Getting a job this time around us a little different than when you were younger. If you are doing it for the fun of it, you can get a job that you enjoy doing or put your lifelong skills to use in other ways than when you had a career. For instance, many retired police officers decide to go back to work as security guards.

This time you can get a job doing something you are passionate about instead of working a job just to pay the bills.

Deciding to work after you hit retirement age may affect your social security benefits. Many retirees choose to work minimal hours to protect their benefits.

Working in your golden years will keep you on your toes and in better shape. Keeping your mind and body busy has many health benefits, as well as staying social.

If you are of retirement age and go back to work, you should be doing it because you want to, not because you are forced to because of lack of retirement planning.
