Reaching retirement age doesn’t equate to actual retirement for more and more Americans these days. According to AARP, 17.9% of people age 65 and older are still working. That’s up from 10.8% in 1985. Many work out of economic necessity, to be sure, while others remain in the labor force to stay active or to meet new people.

Working part-time is a compromise that can help satisfy any and all of those needs without sacrificing the real perk of retirement: free time to travel, spoil the grandkids, pursue hobbies or just relax. Keeping this lifestyle in mind, we identified some of the best part-time jobs for retirees. Each occupation offers flexibility, decent pay and few, if any, requirements for education and experience.

Data is from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Pay ranges reflect the hourly rates in the 25th and the 75th percentile of workers. Happy part-time-job hunting!
