Did you know that working longer may help you live longer? A new study from Oregon State University suggests that working past the ripe old age of 65 could add years to your life. Researchers analyzed around 18 years of data and found that those who stayed on the job past the traditional retirement age of 65 lived longer than those that retired at that age or before. In fact, healthy elderly people who worked a year past the traditional retirement age of 65 had an 11 percent lower mortality risk! That’s pretty significant! Just remember that on the other side of that coin, unhealthy people who worked a bit beyond 65 showed a 9 percent decreased risk of death-- -so make sure you are getting regular physicals and check-ups, especially as you age.
