The days of telling your career "Goodbye" and kicking your feet up in retirement are long gone.
U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics suggests that more seniors are working after retirement.
The researchers found that 57 percent of men and 54 percent of women retired from their career job, just to go to work somewhere else part-time.
Alice Benton has worked years as a beautician and she says shes well aware at the possibility of working for the rest of her life.
"I have often thought about not working and retiring and then looking for a part-time job, but I can't find any part-time job I like more than what I've got," Benton said.
Researchers says one of the main reasons for the retirement decision comes from needing better health benefits.
