Money and health insurance. That is the finding of an AARP survey of workers aged 50 or older. When older workers are asked whether their primary reason for working is financial or non-financial, fully 78 percent say they are working for financial reasons such as the need for money or health insurance. Only 19 percent are working for the fun of it.
