I retired at age 65 due to health issues, but found that to not be very satisfying, so, I returned to the workforce part time & continue today at the age of 79 as I reach 80 in Feb. I will retire again!  I am a Pharmacist & the demands for technology changes have placed me at.a disadvantage working part time.  Best of luck to all of you as you continue past the age of 80!

Dear Johninnevada,

It sounds like you have been very fortunate to be able to sustain long term employment in Las Vegas where the economy has been in recovery since the 2008 disaster.  I am very pleased to know you survived and continue to prosper and enjoy your life.

 

Your positive and giving spirit is inspiring...may you and your wife 

have a blessed holiday season!

I am over 80 and still working. I am wondering how many other AARP members over 80 are still working for pay at age over 80.
