A large number of Americans intend to keep working past retirement age. For many, their reasons are financial. Some have a high level of debt while others are afraid if they retire too soon, they will run out of money.
Working longer offers several financial benefits; workers are able to:
- Accrue a higher Social Security benefit
- Grow a higher pension benefit
- Allow more time to save money and permit investments to grow
- Utilize company-paid insurance benefits
