"Health not Wealth" the Biggest Motivator for Gradual Retirement

More and more workers are opting to retire gradually rather than bringing their career to a complete stop, with their motivation as likely to be about non-financial factors than the desire to supplement a pension.

Research from leading life insurance and pension provider Aegon found that workers aged over 50 were more likely to cite non-financial reasons for wanting to ease into their retirement. The mental and social benefits of continuing to work were major motivating factors among those planning a gradual retirement, as was the key role work plays in shaping our identity and self-esteem.
