More Americans expect to work past their 65th birthdays and never retire, says a recent study.

最近一项研究表示,越来越多的美国人希望65岁生日之后继续工作永不退休。

The Associated Press with the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research polled 1,075 people, age 50 and older.

美联社与NORC公共事务研究中心调查了1075位50岁及以上年龄的老人。

One-fourth of them said they never plan to retire. Among low-income earners in that age group that is even more true than for high earners.

其中四分之一的被调查者表示他们从未打算退休。在这一年龄段中,低收入者较之高收入者而言更是如此。

In America, the age of 65 is the traditional age to retire.

在美国,65岁是传统的退休年龄。

Sixty percent of people aged 50 to 64 said they expect to work past their 65th birthday.

60%年龄在50岁到64岁的老人表示,他们希望65岁生日后继续工作。

More than half of those who are already older than 65 said they plan to keep working, too. They say they are working an average of 31 hours per week.

一半以上已经65岁的老人表示他们也计划继续工作。他们表示自己平均每周工作31个小时。

Those 50 years of age or older said finances are the most important factor in the decision to when to retire.

这些50岁及以上年龄的老年人表示,财政状况是决定何时退休的最重要因素。

A majority of older workers — especially those who are 65 and older — plan to switch employers, or move into an entirely new profession, as they head into the later years.

大多数老年员工,尤其是那些65岁及以上年龄的老年员工,在步入晚年之际都计划改换雇主,或是进入一个全新的行业。

One-third of people earning less than $50,000 a year said they will keep working. About 20 percent of those who earn more than $100,000 said they will never retire.

三分之一年收入低于5万美元的人们表示他们将会继续工作。大约20%收入超过10万美元的人们表示他们永远不会退休。

As baby boomers — people born between 1946 and 1964 -- reach age 65, the United States’ general population will have more older people than ever before.

随着1946年到1964年出生的婴儿潮一代步入65岁的年龄,美国的总人口将比以往任何时候都有更多老年人。

The number of Americans 65 and older jumped 21 percent -- or to 35.5 million -- between 2002 and 2012.

在2002年到2012年期间,65岁及以上年龄的美国人人数上涨了21%,达到了3550万人。

That number is expected to reach 92 million by 2060.

到2060年这一数字有望达到9200万。
