“Many retirees take temporary or part-time work to fund the hobbies and trips they want to enjoy during retirement. Take my sister, who is retired from a warehouse job and wanted to go skiing in Colorado. Her husband was concerned about the expense, so she went back to work at the plant for eight weeks during the pre-Christmas rush. No worries about the cost of the ski trip—her playcheck covered it.” (Hulett)
