And among those who’ve attempted retirement, many have returned to work. Technically, more like an “unretirement,” if you will. A RAND Corporation study revealed results from a 2015 survey that nearly 40% of workers over the age of 65 had previously retired and then boomeranged back to work. Rather than remain in retirement, Farrell refers to it as a sabbatical.
He states, “When we think about retirement as a sabbatical, people are going to retire, take a break and start thinking about what they want to do next. That hopefully will be incredibly liberating. It’s a wonderful idea that you take a year off, recharge and rethink.”
