Ageing and Retirement

Despite the fact that retirement is often anticipated as the well earned period of leisure and pleasure at the conclusion to our working lives it appears that working on into older age is actually better for us. Recent research into retirement suggests that it can be detrimental to our mental and physical health and that people who work past retirement actually flourish for longer.

The research report on ageing and retirement is available here.
