Work – Home Opportunities Seniors Want – But No Scams!
Topics In This Post
I have read so much about retirees struggling to keep afloat from the low pensions they receive. Now it is not impossible to find work – home opportunities seniors want to find out about.
It’s a real boost to the quality of their lives if seniors (or the disabled who must or want to make money online) can work from home on their computers and make up for their financial downsizing.
Because, who doesn’t want to live easy, comfortable lives without the money struggles in their retirement years?
Let’s consider some of the ways for seniors to earn money online.
What are the best jobs for senior citizens?
Do you love your career, but wish you could spend a little less time doing it? Consulting might be a way to go for you. After years in your field of work, you probably have made some good connections who know you and trust your work.
Getting leads from a few of these people might be easy to begin with, but ultimately you will need a good web site so the seekers of your expertise can find you. You can pay $3000.00 to $5000.00 to get a good business web site made for you.
The drawback to that (if you do have that kind of investment money) is that you have to hire a web site creator everytime you want something added or changed.
That is why I am going to share my secrets of learning how to make a good blog yourself, for a pretty low investment money-wise. If that’s why you came to this blog you can start now (zero cost).

I am sure you’re aware of the Zoom classes and all kinds of community activities going on for people to do at home during this current Covid-19 pandemic.
What a huge change to our lives, right?
If you qualify to do professional tutoring (which is well paid) and can promote yourself, there are platforms (Skype, Facetime, Zoom etc.) for tutoring from home.
Connecting with individuals or teams from home has recently developed into a new normal for sport lovers, and for professional teams too.
Dance schools and companies are teaching classes and rehearsing from the safety of their homes.
While some schools are back in the studio, we can only pray for all that it goes well.
If you’re retired, or are planning retirement, you can research current tutors and how they promote themselves.
What do their web sites look like?
Can you make one too? You most certainly can and that’s what this article is here for – to help you get started.
If this something you have already been doing in an office, you can carry on at home. If you want to freelance in retirement or pre-retirement, this can be a very easy transition.
You may need to:
- Update your computer or system
- Get the best internet service so you can download/upload files from clients speedily
- Start a blog for your home business in order to keep a steady stream of clients
If you have no background in tax preparation, companies like HR Block will train you and get you ready for tax season. You will learn their software and possibly use their offices in peak season. When the pandemic is over…
But you came here because you want to make money from home, right? And you most certainly can with tax preparation.
The same internet/computer/background/training requirements follow for the below mentioned fields.

None of the above jobs are scams. yet there are many “make money online” jobs advertised that are. I cover some of those on this site.
While researching for this article I came across this passage on Quora, posted anonymously. It is one answer to the question “Can a 60 year old woman start over in life?”
“You can move, get new friends, find a new job.
You can put the past behind you and take on a new persona.
You can love better and be loved better.
You can become smarter, kinder, and happier.
You can leave behind the people who tear you down.
You can walk away from a demeaning boss or spouse or friend or child.
You can take up healthy habits: food, exercise, sleep
You can find peace.”
It made me think of seniors being able to work at home, or from home, if their field requires interaction outside of the home.
Staying healthy, finding peace…Always good, right?
Starting over or changing your mode of working isn’t always easy.
But that is one of the things I like the most about blogging for money at home.
- Choose your hours
- Accomodate healthcare appointments as you like
- Exercise at home or not, when you want to
- Study blog writing and develop a long term business at the same time
- Work on your computer while traveling
- Live in your RV for months on end and keep earning money
- See more of family and friends
- Stop worrying about money
What percentage of 70 year olds still work?
“Over the past 20 years, the share of Americans working in their 70s has risen from less than 10% to nearly 15%, according to US Census bureau data.
In addition to people being healthier and living much longer, economists say that a combination of financial considerations such as years of stagnant real wages and a shift away from traditional pensions in the private sector are some of the reasons people are working longer. The decline of manufacturing and the increase in the number of people working in less labor-intensive occupations also has contributed to the trend says Abraham, who researches work and retirement decisions of older Americans.” – Quartz
