Almost a third of people plan to start a new career or become a consultant after they retire, according to a new study.
A survey of 2,700 adults by Scottish Widows found that many wanted to keep active, still needed to earn money, or just didn't want to stop work.
One in five said they believed they will not retire until over the age of 70.
Robert Cochrane of Scottish Widows said: "More and more people are seeing retirement as an opportunity to reinvent themselves, re-claiming time to focus on doing things they might not have had the chance to during their younger, working lives."
