Angela Versch worked as a day-care teacher for Bon Secours Health System in Richmond, Virginia, for 17 years. She retired in 2010, but after less than a year, she was back on the job as a substitute teacher.
Versch, now 76, was bored with retirement and wanted to get out of the house. She was able to schedule her work days around visits with her four grandchildren and earn more to supplement her retirement savings.
"My job gives me extra money for the little things, like going out with my grandkids or paying someone to do work around the house," said Versch, who wants to keep her job until she turns 80. "More older people can put a lot more into working. I've been working since I was 17."
