Here in the UK we are living longer, healthier lives which makes it important to think about work as we get older. Working in later life can give you more money, benefit your health, wellbeing and increase your friends and social life.
Default retirement age (a forced retirement age of 65) no longer exists, meaning you can usually work for as long as you want to. In some cases an employer can force you to retire, but they mist give a good reason why, for example, the job requires certain physical abilities or has an age limit set by law. Therefore, most of us can take control of when and how we retire.
