Faced with the expectation of living healthier for longer, older adults may opt to remain in the workforce for longer and defer savings, pensions, and Social Security for a later age.

The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research conducted a national survey of 1,024 adults ages 50 and over. This survey illuminates a slow-moving shift in the American idea of retirement. Retirement is not only coming later in life, but for many it no longer represents a complete exit from the workforce.  The study does not highlight LGBT workers in particular but gives an illuminating look at older Americans views on working and retirement.
