“We have this profound gift, a gift of potential extra time. Many people today could live to be a 100, but that a gift,” says Catherine Collinson, CEO and president, Transamerica Institute.
“It’s not an entitlement. It requires careful planning and preparation every step of the way in terms of our health and our finances.”
WorkingNation sat down with Collinson at the Milken Institute Global Conference 2022 in Beverly Hills.
She points out that ‘real magic’ can happen when employers consider a multigenerational workforce.
Collinson says research indicates that many people are looking to continue working past the age of 65 and not just for financial reasons. “When we ask about the reasons for doing so, they’re almost as often, or more often, to cite what we call healthy aging reasons. Want to stay active, involved, enjoying what they do, wanting to keep our brains alert.”
