How to maintain a healthy work-life balance in your 60s – and beyond
A growing number of older people are working past their retirement age in an attempt to bridge the financial gap between soaring living costs, an inadequate pension and a lengthening retirement.
But it's not just about money – a survey last year by Aviva found that one in four people in Britain plan to keep working beyond the age of 70 to stave off loneliness and to help stay mentally active.
Official figures suggest that around 15pc of men and 8pc of women over the age of 65 are currently in employment, and projections from the Centre for Economics and Business Research suggest that the number of employed 50-64 year-olds will surpass nine million before the end of 2018, and 10 million by 2021.
