The article highlights retirees' active lifestyles which require more comprehensive yet flexible retirement planning. According to a study conducted by MetLife Mature Market Institute in 2006, returning to work is common for retirees. Tom McCarthy of McCarthy & Cox, LLC in Marysville, Ohio, believes that retired clients should maintain certain amounts of cash based on their age and their life situation. McCarthy also notes that access to healthcare at a reasonable price and fear of pension stability are the two main reasons why retirees go back to work.
