Study finds 5% of men decide to 'un-retire'

A new study of 2,000 men aged between 50 and 74 by Ricky Kanabar from the University of York has shown that five per cent of respondents had taken the decision to 'un-retire'.

The findings showed that the bulk of those going back into work were more skilled - taking up posts in managerial positions and the like, as opposed to physical jobs, for example.

In America, the number of men 'un-retiring' was in fact six times higher than it was in Britain, the Economist reported.

With the cost of living ever on the rise, it would appear that those who still feel they are fighting fit would rather get stuck into a job than recline in an armchair as soon as they possibly can.

This may also be because new figures from LV= show almost one million people reaching retirement age are still supporting their middle-aged children, meaning that individuals may increasingly feel the need to top up their pension pots.
