As our population ages with increasing chronic disease, the U.S. faces enormous and unprecedented stresses to its health care system and economy. While many Americans age 65 and older are no longer in the “traditional” workforce, they are increasingly seeking opportunities for civic engagement, exploring new careers, supporting families, and continuing to contribute to society. Education, wealth, and health all increase the opportunities for older Americans to make continued societal contributions post-retirement.
