Many Trinbagonians retire, but soon after
they are yearning to return to the workforce.
It is a choice each individual must make based
on his personal situation and goals.
If you are thinking about re-launching your career
after retiring, here are some things to consider.
Making Ends Meet
For many reasons, it is necessary for some people
to return to work to meet financial obligations.
Some want to work a bit longer to afford special
vacations or luxuries otherwise not possible.
Those are valid reasons for returning to work
However, it is wise to calculate the cost of return-
ing to work. There are costs associated with working,
including transportation, clothing, training, taxes,
and meals that chip away at your income.
Assess the net income that results after deducting
all expenses to be sure re-entering work is a smart
Benefit & Taxation Implications
Beyond the new source of income, there are var-
ious financial implications. Evaluate all sources of
income and the tax status of your retirement and
regular brokerage accounts.
Take a Test Run
Perhaps when you started your career you par-
ticipated in an internship program. Today many
retirees considering re-entry are taking intern posi-
tions. It s a great way to test their wings in a new
If you are interested in a company and they don t
have a formal intern program, ask about serving
as an intern. They may be willing to host an intern
for a limited amount of time in exchange for the
chance to have an experienced professional on-
Other retirees are working as a temporary employ-
ee as a trial run. Internships and temporary positions
are great ways to build new skills and can lead to
permanent positions. If a target company isn t
interested in an intern, see if they would consider
a short-term contract or hiring you as a temporary
Health & Well-Being
Some may think that the individuals
playing bridge, swinging on the golf
course, or relaxing in front of the 60-
inch flat screen may be taking better care
of themselves than those of the same age
that have chosen to work. Yes - friend-
ships, exercise, and relaxation are good
However, it is also healthy for the mind
and body to find meaning in life and make
a valuable contribution in a work setting.
Work gives many a special reason to get
up in the morning. It prevents isolation
because work keeps you engaged with
co-workers and sometimes customers.
Also consider the exercise to your brain
a new job brings.
After you have assessed all of the fac-
tors, you can determine if jumping back
in the workforce is right for you. A re-
entry into the working world is a chance
to develop your professional skills further.
It can be the start of a challenging and
stimulating new career, perhaps better
than your first career. Also, consider that
retirees returning to work give younger
people an opportunity to learn from those
that are more experienced.
Retirement isn t the right solution for
everyone. And, for some, it s really not
practical given their financial situation.
Many options are available now, so check
