Survey: Many Would Still Work If They Could Afford Not To

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- If you could afford not to work, would you still go to your job?

That was the question recently posed in a recent post by the investment strategy firm PlanSponsor.

More than a third of those surveyed said they would not work if they didn't have to. But, a quarter said they would still work occasionally or just for fun.

Twenty percent would change fields and work just part time.

Here are some of the responses:

- "With sufficient funds, I'd want to establish a scholarship foundation and work part-time at running it, along with full-time staff."

- "If I didn't have to work to earn money, I think I would travel and volunteer almost all the time."

- "I have enough now. My wife wants me to be Medicare eligible before I retire."
