One in seven (14%) UK retirees have returned to work, according to the latest resarch from Standard Life. The proportion of men who have already “unretired” (16%) or are considering doing so (5%) is higher than that of women (12% and 4%). Nearly two thirds (64%) of over 55s who have gone back to work cite income issues as the driving force. Almost one third of them (32%) say prices have risen more sharply than they anticipated. However, roughly the same number (31%) simply want to boost their finances in order to squeeze more enjoyment from their retirement.
