Part-Time Work in Retirement

As you near retirement, you may wonder if you should get a part-time job. Are you someone that can’t sit still for too long? Do you want extra income for necessities and leisure activities? Or do you want to get out of the house and maintain a social life? If you answered yes to any of those questions, a part-time job may be perfect for you.

Bear in mind that part-time work doesn’t have to be boring or low-paying employment. Retirees play an important role in the workforce, and there are a lot of ways to work a flexible schedule while still enjoying retirement.

The Gig Economy

It may come as a surprise but, in the free market system, temp positions are very common. It’s 2019, and let’s face it, the gig economy is alive, well, and growing. For example, Uber Eats, DoorDash, and other new food delivery systems are taking off, which creates an opportunity for those who retire but need to keep active while simultaneously adding cash flow to their retirement budget.
