Salary Negotiations When You’re Retiring Soon

Salary negotiations can be tricky no matter where you are in your career. However, it’s important to approach negotiations when you are close to retirement age with both confidence and caution.

Know your value

Think about other benefits you can negotiate

Remember, working longer has benefits

  • A sense of pride and a bigger sense of purpose.
  • A larger retirement fund.
  • Feeling younger and involved in your community.

Working even part-time has benefits to those that are able-bodied. Your mind stays sharper and you are more likely to stay social, which plays a large part in the reduction of depression in seniors.

Negotiating a salary or benefits is an important part of progressing your career. When you find yourself at the end of your work life, it’s even more important to negotiate the benefits that matter the most to you.
