We all want to retire someday and live comfortably on our earnings from years of hard work. There are many different strategies for saving up, but the ultimate goal is to have enough money to live on for the rest of your life. But to get there, you must become frugal and find ways to make your dollars go farther. One way is by working part-time jobs that will supplement (or increase!) your retirement income. With this being said, below are a few jobs for seniors in my area that we recommend for retirees who wish to bring in some extra cash here and there:
The first job might be retail, requiring no previous experience or education. As said, all you need is a good attitude and a willingness to work. Retail workers usually start at minimum wage and may even get bonuses based on sales volume and other variables. If you can work the holidays, this could be a great job for you to do until you retire. Working retail would also give you some extra cash for holiday shopping (or your loved ones as well).
A second job might be more in line with what most people want; they want higher pay and more hours. These jobs include a range of professions, such as doctors and nurses, but also other professionals who may want to work during their off time too. This is a perfect fit for retirees as it involves little overtime too. And with that extra income, you can retire even more comfortably.
A third possibility is working for the post office. As many of us know, the post office has been on reduced hours and in some parts of the country, even closed down altogether due to budget cuts. This could be an excellent solution for retirees who want to provide extra income while they can still work part time. You would need high school or at least GED education in order to apply for these positions (which is ironic). And once hired, you could only work part time (maybe 25 hours per week) but still get a decent salary.
As you can see, there are many possibilities for retirees who wish to make some extra money. Retail and the post office might not be the best options, but they’re good ones nonetheless. If you have other ideas on jobs to do while retired, please leave us a comment below!
