Many British 70-74-year-olds are working. Around 10% of them work. This is the highest figure ever. Over 250,000 have jobs. In 2005, it was just 100,000. People are retiring later because pensions are more difficult to live on. Many people cannot retire. They have to work to survive.

There have been big changes in the jobs market. Many people need extra money. They cannot afford to retire. Older people now need good jobs and pensions to decide if they want to stay in work. Older people are starting their own businesses. This is something they may have dreamed of doing for many years.
