Retired? Do You Know About the Longevity Bonus?

Publicado hace 12 días

As attitudes toward the aging population's place in society shifts from negative burden to positive benefit, many older adults are examining how their experience and maturity can be used toward a greater purpose in retirement. According to Ken Dychtwald, a pioneer in the field of aging, this “longevity bonus” comes from the continued contribution of people over 50 to our economy and communities. Increasingly, older adults are redefining success in their later years in terms of the potential for “generosity,” and see giving back as the key to being useful, staying socially connected to others, and living a healthier, longer life.
