Encore Careers Bridging the Retirement Income Gap

If you're interesting in a new career (or career transition) to bridge a retirement income gap, consider an encore career. There is an upcoming event by the New America Foundation for retirees who want to go back to work.

What if millions of Baby Boomers elected not to retire, and instead chose to change jobs, start small businesses, or find other ways to serve their communities?

Encore careers that combine continued income and social purpose already are a real choice for millions of Americans.

How big is the market for encore careers? Could they boost retirement income security? Given the state of the economy and the circumstances of the average worker approaching retirement age, does the idea even make sense?
