Older former employees could be encouraged to return to work if they were offered guidance on how to organise their finances, according to Stephen Lowe, group communications director at retirement specialist Just Group. Writing on the website Director of Finance he argues: “As increasing numbers of older workers return to work, employers need to be cognisant of the factors driving this trend: market turbulence, the rising cost of living and uncertainty that their pension savings will last through retirement. These “Great Unretirees” will have taken a substantial knock to their confidence when it comes to making significant decisions with their finances. Supporting these workers back into the workplace with a strong financial wellness offering will help them find their feet in the workplace and build up their belief again.” Figures from the Just Group suggest as many as 520,2000 economically inactive 50-64 year olds are seeking work, inclujing 25,000 who had previously retired.
