Evaluate health vs working

When you are approaching retirement and doing your calculations to see if you have to work or not – you should also evaluate your health.

If you decide you should work after retirement to supplement your retirement income, take your current health into consideration. If you are healthy, and you expect to remain healthy – good. Work away. Chances are that you will have many more years of relaxed retirement even if you work for a few years after retirement. With a little extra money.

However, if your health is less than perfect, and you can see slowing down sooner than later – you might re-consider working unless you absolutely have to for financial reasons.

My point is that you only have so many years left after retirement. The whole idea is to enjoy those years the best you can. If you are risking your health by working, if at all possible retire on what you have to work with and prolong health issues.
