Return to work roadblock for older people

We all know or have personally experienced the challenges that come with finding work as older people, and new research from National Seniors has revealed just how widespread this is.

This week, National Seniors launched their research report about post-retirement work, entitled “If people want to work they should be able to”: Older Australians’ Perspectives on Working After Retirement.

The report, based on almost 4,000 responses to the tenth National Seniors Social Survey (NSSS-10) in February this year, reveals key insights about how many retirees want to return to paid work, their reasons for doing so, and the range of barriers getting in their way.
