Many individuals over the age of 50 realize far too late that they will need to supplement their retirement income. A deep concern has escalated in the lack of part time jobs for senior citizens in the last few years. Did you know that in the years from 1946 to 1964 there were 76 million births? Factoring out the numbers to include deaths, immigration and other issues, an estimated 10,000 people in the United States will turn 65 each day for approximate the next 17 years.

So maybe it has finally hit you, that you are over 40 (okay over 50) you have attempted to set goals, delayed plans for those retirement years and most probably know squat concerning where you stand with your financial investments (if any). Have you even started trying to figure out if your income will be more than sufficient for your everyday retirement living expenses, to cover those dreams and all of the bills? Or will you have to find a part time job or worse continue working full time?

Baby boomers in their 60s and beyond, are feeling younger, healthier, and more aware of life situations, which leads to the majority of seniors attempting to stay in the work force competiting against someone more than half their age.

Just a few income retirement issues baby boomers ponder:

  • I really don’t know if I am financially ready for retirement living.                                  People are rethinking retirement
  • I have to totally depend on social security, will it be enough?
  • I can’t retire on my income
  • I am to old to find another job
  • My employer is eliminating my position after all I did for them, now what?
  • I will need to find a part time job, but who hires the boomer generation?
  • Where do I begin to start look for any type of extra income source?
  • Can I really supplement my retirement income?
  • Where do I find help for my senior years?

I am telling you now you should just forget all of the hassle of putting together a resume, toning up on interview skills, doing an endless job search, dealing with all the pressure that comes with it. Why? Do you realize that there is an average of 150 resumes submitted for one position that is posted, and that is in the first two weeks. So how many resumes are you going to have to send out to get noticed, to beat out that 20 year old?

Employment, jobs, resumes and most certainly interviews have changed dramatically over the last 10 years and unfortunately the jobs for older individuals (I’m talking even starting in your 40’s and up) are extremely hard to find, to get noticed and to snatch that glorious job from the younger generation. So the question is why fight the overcrowded, underpaying, stressed out job seeking market?

A whole new total twist when it comes to part time jobs for senior citizens, comes down to discovery and doing it for yourself, by means of self employment, starting your own business. Now don’t freak out on me, or say that you’ve heard it all before, please keep an open mind and change your thinking while I share a few fantastic ideas with you:

3 easy part time job ideas that can totally change your world…

  • Many individuals and especially boomers are making a decent part time income, selling everyday household items and varieties of extremely popular retail merchandise, and the vast amount of individuals getting involved have compared it to holding a garage sale. How hard is that?
  • The world loves information. I’m not talking fluff or gossip, but they are searching for specific true form information that involves their interest. Everyday people just like yourself going into retirement or who are already there are discovering how to share their knowledge by writing about their experiences, hobbies, health, family issues, and the best part is the extra streams of income that come with it.
  • Everyone has a hobby, a niche, or something they are good at, and one fantastic area that people of all ages and especially those over the age of 50, are discovering sources of income by getting involved, sharing knowledge about a hobby and having their own website! It’s not hard, again it will take some work but just keep in mind it is involving a passion that you love doing. It is true, do what you love and the money will follow.

Again don’t freak or go into denial, the suggestions here are FREE to explore and each one is a fantastic source that with some work (hey remember you were looking for a part time job) you can follow step by step instructions and have tons of support and have a non stop source of income!

Going forward into retirement take into consideration the following:

  • Learn to rethink retirement, how to earn extra income, how to retire comfortably
  • You have advantages that you are not aware of
  • You have experience, you are savvy, you have the right mind set that maybe you should be doing something for yourself, maybe working for yourself, being your own boss.
  • Do not say that you can’t do it, you can start before your actually retire, or you can most definitely work on your own success in those retirement years.

One word of caution, please be aware of the scams concerning part time jobs for senior citizens especially online and yes there are thousands of them. The point is you have to make an informatative decision to be working for yourself! Thousands of individuals over the age of 50 are discovering part time jobs for senior citizens on their own terms, are achieving fantastic results and are enjoying what they are doing. So now you just have to get started, take that first step and do it for yourself!

    Some awesome ideas for senior citizens to make some cash here! I’m not exactly in the older generation but I like the idea of picking a hobby niche and making money off that!
    What education or course would you suggest for this? Is there one in mind that you use?

      Hey Chris, I myself have gone through a lot of online businesses and it seems all of them have unreal expectations or they were flat out scams. I highly recommend taking a look at wealthy affiliate, where anyone can work at their own speed, and develop their passion or hobby and make extra money doing. Most important is the step by step training that you can go back and review as much as you want, so please check it out!

    What a great website. The information is very useful and offers a great idea for seniors or those approaching retirement. Many retirement age people want the freedom that retirement offers but not the boating do nothing routine.

    I like the layout of your site. It is very simple and clean. Your articles are nicely written and laid out for easy reading. They have good flow.

    Your product pages are clean and link nicely.

    The only suggestion I can make is that there really is nothing about you on the site…It is hard to get a feel for who you are.

    But all in all a great site.

    I have seen a few senior citizens in my local area in their 70’s who keep chasing opportunity after opportunity. Some of them invited me to join Direct Selling companies and make commission-based sales. I was shock to see that these folks are very energetic to supplement their income for their grandchildren. But I personally think that going for online part-time jobs is much easier as we don’t have to leave home and approach strangers.

      I know what you are saying, I see some of the younger generation attempting to get money out of older relatives. Why does is seem that the younger generation does not want to work, or are expecting things to be given to them. Working with a legitimate online business such as wealthy affiliate brings great possibilities to people of all ages. Having their own business, expanding their minds, having an influence on others!

    I’m not 50 (yet 🙂 ), but it’s always better to know some things and to be prepared for the future.
    I really liked the way you wrote this article and that is why I have decided to leave you my feedback.
    Thanks for sharing your research.
    Cheers!
    PS: really great ideas 🙂

    Timely article. With the poor economy, changes in health care, and stock market troubles, many older individuals are finding that their finances are in trouble. This is sad as many have been led to believe that if they worked for thirty years they would be set for life. Your article gives them a number of options to help them maintain or achieve financial stability. Nice job.

      Hey Eric, thanks for your response, people need to realize that they have to other incomes coming in and not just social security or one work pension. They need to build other avenues of income – that is what this website is about, giving options and directions to anyone that is concerned about retirement for themselves or for loved ones.

    Though Im still I have realize there are a lot of seniors who still have a job even though they should be retired. I don’t know if its because of the economy or what but for seniors who still need to work even though there retirement fund should provide the money for it; it must suck. But good job and helping them find jobs that they can enjoy while they are old so that they don’t have to regret their life. Keep up the good work.

      I keep seeing different numbers on the people who do not have any type of retirement besides social security. Maybe I should start taking my own survey, starting with everyone in WA. Anyone else care to share their (lack of) retirement money story?

    Hi Angela…Being I just turned 50 recently, my mind wanders to this topic quite often. Gone are the days when I used to think about my next career advancement. Now the occupation is thinking about how many years I have left until retirement. Although I’ve been active in retirement planning most of my adult life, I still wonder if it will be enough to thrive on.

    Great ideas you bring up here which I’ll give serious consideration to. thanks

    Thanks for lots of really good information. I am approaching the age of consdieration (59 in a couple of weeks) lol…I have set myself up for some additional income flows, but this is the million dollar question…Will it be enough?

    The solution I have found is to start building something else up now before I get into the age where I am thrown out on my ear by whoever I happen to be working with ( I work with several companies/entities)…

    This “something” is to establish my own online marketing business. The site that I ended up at is called Wealthy Affiliate, and it is the best no kidding straight no scammy education program available!

    Through the site, I have been able to already start making a little money through my online activities, and this is growing every month! I suggest that all people who are hitting the retirement age and wanting to still have some income to check this out.

    Thanks for your insightful aticle here, and keep adding info, from the numbers you cite at the start of this post, there are a number of folks that can use a site such as yours!! You might want to check out Wealthy Affiliate as well and expand on that program, it is a good one!!

    Cheers!

    I can’t believe that so many will people reach retirement age in the uSA for the next 17 years! That’s an astonishing figure, and one I never really thought of.

    That surely creates a HUGE opportunity for those people to make money online 🙂

    I can see how the retirement issues do cause major concerns and problems for retired people, but help really is at hand if they arre willing to open thmselves up to new online opportunities.

    Thanks for sharing the part-time job ideas that I know will be of value to some retired folk I know.

    My Father is about to retire and I fear for him…he has no plans and I know that his job has been the reason he lives all his adult life. I am going to share this article with him…I have a feeling that your “3 easy part time job ideas” will get him thinking the right thoughts and hopefully he will start to think about what he can do and focus on when he retires.

      So many people fall into a routine and expect social security or their pension to get them through retirement, which in reality is like having blinders on. Your father and millions of others need to start thinking (the sooner the better) of ways to have extra income, even if it is $50- 100 a week, it will certainly help! Thanks

    I have seen quite a few people over 60 make 6 figures or more by marketing services and products online. They create books, courses, and sell other products and fund their travel and many other endeavors after retirement. I am planting seeds today to make that transition as easy as possible in the next 20 years. I also have children and I want their incomes to be set by the time they reach 18. With hard work, I know that I can do it. Thanks for this great reminder.

    I like your post and unfortunately it is a sad truth that most people will not have enough income to last them through retirement.

    I am also sure most people don’t want to spend their golden years working for a boss, so your suggestions for making an online income are great.

    Building your own business from home is the answer for a sround retirement.

      You are right! Now it is a goal of mine to get information in front of as many people that I can and some how retrain their brains, to help them understand their money situation! A good thought to this is even if a person would just do some writing on a topic they enjoyed or on a hobby, learned to work it like a business, they could earn some extra cash and also keep their brain sharp! So many older people just let their brains turn to ………

    I love the options you have covered here but I can’t help thinking that these types of things will actually work for anyone online? Take the niche marketing option you have in third position there – this is an awesome choice for anyone to earn online…no matter what their level. Do you partake in internet marketing yourself with this site?

      I try to offer a variety of information just because I realize that everyone is different in their lifestyles and interests, so it is up to the individual to find out where their interest lies and to discover ways to incorporate that into their lives to help with their income in the present and also in the future.

      I do promote products that I feel will benefit people and I will continue to find items that will help people to improve their lives. Come back and visit again

    Hi Angela

    I think that most people will wake up too late and realize that they do not have enough money to retire with. This is very sad because you have worked for 45 years and now you still have to work just to make ends meet. Then I do not even want to talk about health.

    I believe that affiliate marketing can help most people out and it is not that hard to do.

      Yes you make some very good points here, I think people are not properly trained or kept up to date on how to handle their finances and their future income. People in the past always depended on pensions, retirement funds from their workplace…but those things are becoming more hard to find in your employment years.

      So yes, people need to be retrained, need to be aware of what their future could look like. Hopefully my sources, ideas and tips through my website can help individuals find peach of mind. And I agree that affiliate marketing is a great place to start and to grow into. Keep at !!

      Thanks!!

    Hi Angela,
    I remember being 25 years old and worrying that I’d have enough for retirement! Fast forward 15 years and I worry less, especially as I commit to thinking outside the box. Submitting my resume and competing with 150 other people is NOT the way I want to do this! I think e-commerce and affiliate marketing offer life changing opportunities with low barriers to entry for anyone willing to take a chance on themselves and invest some time and energy. You are going to help a lot of people who want to help themselves. Thanks!

      Wow Alyssa,

      you certainly packed a lot of information into the few sentences you left here! I have to applaud you for “getting” it. So many people are stuck in a daily routine and cannot see beyond daily task. That is my whole mission here, to get people more informed of what the future may hold for them and how to be better prepared. Come back and visit more often.
