Seniors Going Back To Work to Salvage Their Retirement Nest Eggs, Says AMAC

Seniors who went back to work after retirement used to do it to keep busy, but the Obama Recession and the uncertainties of the Affordable Care Act have made it an economic necessity for more and more older Americans, according to Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.

“Two recent Gallup surveys show that there are more post-retirement job seekers out there than ever before, mainly because they’ve lost confidence in the economy. The historically destructive recession that started as the president took office and his inability to speed up the recovery have seniors scrambling for ways to salvage what’s left of their retirement. Bear in mind that while the net worth of all Americans has declined sharply during this period, seniors have been hardest hit.”

“Most of today’s college grads won’t be able to retire until 73 due to high debt load —12 years later than the current average retirement age,” reports NerdWallet which produced the graphic. “Given a life expectancy of 84, grads will only have 11 years to enjoy retirement.”
