Older persons can face a balancing act between their work and family commitments and choosing when is the right time for them to leave the workforce. Both financial considerations and health status often play a role when older persons consider the best time to start their retirement. Some people may choose to continue in employment after the age of 65 which can improve the financial well-being of some older persons who might not otherwise have an adequate income for their retirement.
