  • An increasing number of Kiwis remain in the workforce past 65 and it is not uncommon to see 70 to 75-plus year olds still working productively.
  • As a population, New Zealand workers are healthier than their parents at the same age and therefore many choose to continue to contribute to society and the workforce.
  • There are around 280,000 New Zealanders over 55 who are currently working.
  • There are many organisations and employers looking for people with skills and experience to join them – just because you might be over 55 doesn’t at all mean that they are not interested in you.
