    Hello. You’re right, it’s a personal thing. I would say that I would probably find some part-time work – it’ll depend on circumstances, how I get on with my hobbies, whether I just need to do something, even if I didn’t need the money (or I could be doing it because I do need the money!). I’m the sort of person who has lots of hobbies and interests, so I’m unlikely to get bored, although if the hobbies get expensive, the extra cash from p/t work will come in handy! 🙂

      Agree about having the extra cash. You never know what interests you might take up in life. Better to have the cash than not!

    I envision myself in retirement as someone who is only working part-time at a job I enjoy doing. I hope to do my part-time job well into my 50s and possibly 60s, which I may be able to do because it is in the fitness industry.

    I would prefer to spend the rest of my retirement travelling the world and taking general interest courses to keep my mind active.

    The fact that many people can’t afford to retire and have no choice but to work in their retirement years scares me. Fear seems to be a good motivator for me to plan, work as much as I can and save as much as I can for retirement.

      I too see those that can’t retire and just don’t want to be working the rest of my life. Well, I’d be OK working if I was doing something I loved. I don’t want to work just so that I can afford to survive.
