BECKLEY - A recent poll shows about half of working people ages 50 and older plan to retire later than they anticipated.

The survey released by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs shows these workers plan to retire at age 66, nearly three years later than their expectation when they were 40. The research reports finances, health and the need for employer benefits are most likely to play a role in retirement timing.

The survey shows many older workers plan to do some work for pay even after retiring from their primary career.
