We've written so often about baby boomers and others working past traditional retirement age that I almost didn't bother with this post.
But the CNBC article Working During Retirement May Be The 'New Normal' had a couple of new slants on this topic.
The article covers a study of wealthy individuals (more than $1.5 million in investable assets) done by Barclays. Key quote:
"... some 60 percent of respondents said they envision always being involved in commercial or professional work of some kind, whatever their age."
The reasons this group plans to continue working are same as we've reported in the past - to generate income, enjoyment of work, wanting to keep busy and be productive and healthier early retirement years.
So the rich may be different, but their their plans and reasons for working past retirement are similar to the rest of us.
Also interesting, the study was global and the results are pretty consistent across geographies.
