The advocacy group AARP surveyed preretirees and working retirees in the U.S. between ages 50 and 70. 45 percent of respondents expect to work into their seventies. 54 percent cited the need for money and 66 percent listed health benefits as a primary motivating factor. A Strong Retirement Plan Services survey found that half expect to work into retirement, with 61 percent of them putting in 20 hours or more.
