They were forced to make this decision by the current inflationary pressure across the globe, as some people’s retirement benefit or assets can no longer absorb the general rise in price. The latest (July 2022) UK inflation figure as published earlier today shows a further rise in annual inflation from 9.4% to 10.1%. This is still attributable to the rise in energy costs and its effects on the prices of other goods and services.
This development underscores the need for having an adequate nestegg to live comfortably after our active years. Most seniors are battling one health condition or the other: Hypertension, visual impairment, Arthritis etc Therefore the decision to go back to work must have been made as a matter of compulsion and at a great personal discomfort.
