Life after 65 is starting to look a lot more like life at … 64. The percentage of Americans working past the traditional retirement age hit new highs in the most recent jobs numbers, according to recent reports, with 19 percent of those 65 and older working at least part-time. And it's only expected to increase: The over-65 set is expected to be the fastest-growing demographic in the workplace by 2024, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
"Retirement, Deferred: Workers — and Companies — Grapple With a New Reality" is from the July 19, 2017 On Leadership section of The Washington Post. It was written by Jena McGregor and narrated by Sam Scholl.
