One in four 65 to 74-year-olds are continuing to earn a wage, in a rising trend of older people remaining in the workplace for longer, a report found.

Some 23% of people in this age group were still wage earners in December 2012, compared with 18% when insurance group Aviva's first Real Retirement Report launched almost three years ago.
