"Higher rent, higher food prices and longer lifespans often lead to financial challenges for many Americans, leading to post-retirement job searches. More people have returned to work after retirement, with a steady uptick happening over the last few months!"

Message from John-MCOA/SCSEP:

"Good morning Ms. Lee. Were you able to get in contact with Mr Boulware?"

"Thanks so much, John! I was able to get in contact with Mr. Boulware, who was extraordinary!"

(The Story...with a bit of hyperbole...and a little feedback too).

After more than a decade in retirement, Gregory Boulware went back to work in 2020.

Boulware, 69, was a truck driver for about 30 years, spending long hours on the road, away from his Pennsylvania home and his wife and kids, to make a living and put away some savings. His body started to suffer the consequences of years on the road, and he began to worry that the continuous back pain and aches would worsen. So he went back to school and got his associate's degree in management and information technology in 2007 but could only find temporary work. He retired in 2008.

(I've spent more than thirty years, as a straight truck operator, tractor trailer operator, and bus driver; Earned an 'Associate Degree in Specialized Business and Computer Science in 2004; My Trucking Routes were New York, New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania).

In retirement, he started writing books, "which make no money," he said with a laugh, but he had retirement savings, started collecting Social Security at 59, and had a plan. But then he and his wife bought a house.

(This retirement occurred in 2003, from The Transportation Industry; began writing in 2007, with my first publication via "Ezine Articles").

"When we lived in an apartment, we were doing fine because we could easily afford it, but every year the rent would go up," Boulware said. "I woke up one day and said, 'You know, these people can tell us to leave, and the next hour, we would have nowhere to go.'"

(The apartment life occurred after the "Empty Nest Syndrome," when our children became adults and left home...downsizing was the plan).

The (new) house bought with their life's savings led to fear of losing the house, every mortgage payment a challenge, sometimes pulling from other expenses such as food and gas to make ends meet. Boulware decided he needed to go back to work. He enrolled in a job training program for low-income adults through the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), a community service and work based training program for older workers authorized by the Older Americans Act, and was hired last month into a clerical job..."Assistant Program Director!"

"Assistant Program Director," working with Mr. John Gonzalez, who is the "Program Director" for SCSEP/MCOA:
"Senior Community Service Employment Program" via Philadelphia's Division of
"The Mayor's Commission On Aging."

"Retirement doesn't mean what it used to," said Nora Dowd Eisenhower, Executive Director at the Philadelphia Mayor's Commission on Aging.
