Recent trends and headlines indicate boomers are not slowing down after retirement, and they express their desire to continue working, and to be active.
A newly released MetLife study addresses a new social movement wherein millions of baby boomers say they want to, or have actively pursued what are being called “encore careers.”
The study, “MetLife Foundation/Civic Ventures Encore Career Survey,” is the first of its kind in the U.S. The survey confirms and expands upon findings from the 2005 “MetLife Foundation/Civic Ventures New Face of Work Survey.”
The survey confirmed that between 5.3 and 8.4 million people ages 44 to 70 have found encore careers. And about half of those respondents who have not found an encore career indicate that they want to.
