Healthy Living: Psychic income: Poll shows seniors happier on the job
Working seniors are happier and it’s not just because of the money they earn, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens. In fact, 27 percent of men and women who are between the ages of 50 and 69 and who are still employed say that it’s “the happiest time” of their working lives.
A survey commissioned by Charles Schwab & Co. also showed that the older you are, the happier you are on the job. The poll found that “a significantly higher percentage of 60-somethings than 50-somethings say they don’t plan to stop working (34 percent vs. 25 percent, respectively).”
Of course, the main reason to keep working past what used to be the retirement age of 65 is the money it provides, but a great many of them do it for the “psychic income” -- they like what they do.
