Many of us go through our working lives buying into the idea that retirement means permanently punching out from a career and heading off into the sunset (preferably poolside).
The reality, however, is that the numbers of retirees re-entering the workforce is on the rise; according to a recent survey, as of March 2022, 3.2% of workers who were retired a year earlier are now employed.

To help you figure out whether unretirement is right for you, we asked un-retirees and experts to share their advice and experiences.
