More than 37 million people over the age of 50 are at risk of not having enough income to meet their basic needs. Work for Yourself@50+ makes it easy for older adults to explore their self-employment opportunities and increase their financial stability.
By 2024, a quarter of the workforce will be over 55, and of these, a third will be 65 or more. And for many over 50, self-employment becomes a necessity as traditional job opportunities are scarce and the value of retirement savings continues to decline.
