Obviously lots of different reasons, some are forced (money, health insurance) and others just enjoy it or don't have much of a life outside of work.

I know several that have told me they don't plan to retire (i.e., work until unable to).

I'm guessing once someone is financially able to retire but continues to work, the freedom of knowing they don't need the money is liberating and reduces stress.

Some of this is no different than a discussion of where you want to live in retirement (still figuring that one out) or how much money do you need. Lots of differing opinions.

I'm sure in some cases someone who has lost a spouse may choose to continue to work to avoid loneliness.
