Retiring doesn’t mean that you have to stop working! Being a retiree means you have more time than ever to find a job that keeps your brain active, gives you something fun to do, and makes you money—and the best part is that you can do all of these jobs without ever leaving the sofa.

Freelance Writing

If you’ve always had a knack for writing, freelancing could be the perfect job for you. You’ll get paid to write about all kinds of topics that are geared toward your interests, and the best part is that you can work at your own pace from the comfort of your own home. Check out websites like Freelance Writing Jobs, The Write Life, and Freelance Writing to find jobs that pique your interest.

Pay: $10-$20 per hour

Telephone Nursing

If you’re a retired nurse, you can still put your degree and experience to good use by becoming a telephone nurse for a health insurance or health management company. You’ll perform duties including case management, treatment authorization, and patient education—all from the comfort of your own home, and the pay is only slightly less than that of an on-site nurse.

Pay: Up to $50,000 per year 

Online Teaching

Are you a retired teacher? Why not continue to use those skills to enrich the lives of more students? As an online teacher, you’ll teach your lessons via Skype or a pre-recorded session, and your students will contact you by email or direct message when they have questions. Check out sites like Connections Academy or K12 to see what positions are available that match your expertise.

Pay: $30,000+ per year 

Taking Surveys

If you don’t mind answering questions about your shopping habits or reviewing products, you can actually end up making a decent amount of money for simply giving your opinion. Check out Darwin’s Data or Pinecone Research, enter your information, and they’ll contact you when they need surveyers from your demographic.

Pay: $1-$50 per survey

Starting an Online Business

Starting your own business is easier than ever in this day and age, so if you’re skilled at making homemade jewelry, dog treats, or greeting cards, why not get paid to do it? Check out Etsy to figure out how to get your business up and running, then set your prices, your own hours, and let the cash start coming in.  

Pay: Varies greatly. Typically $100-$50,000 per month 

User-Testing

You don’t have to be a tech guru to test websites. These types of sites are actually looking for the average person to test their website and determine how easy it is to navigate. All you have to do is follow their instructions, answer a few simple questions, and you’ll soon receive your compensation through Paypal. Check out UserTesting, YouEye, and UserLytics for opportunities.

Pay: $100-$200 per month

Search Engine Evaluating

If you stay up-to-date with all of the current movies, music, and other forms of pop culture, you may want to contact Google or Yahoo to see if you can become a search engine evaluator. They’ll provide you with keywords to search for, and you’ll let them know if the results you find match up with what you’re looking for.

Pay: $9-$10 per hour

Pet Sitting

Pet sitting for friends and acquaintances is a wonderful way to earn a little extra cash while enjoying some creature comfort, especially if you don’t have a furry friend of your own. Talk to your friends and post on your Facebook page that you’re available to watch people’s pets while they’re out of town, then enjoy getting paid to walk dogs and laze on the sofa with some cuddly cats.

Pay: $8-$12 per hour

Doing Direct Sales

If you love meeting people and trying out cool, new products, becoming a direct salesperson could be perfect for you! You can work for a wide variety of companies, including Avon, Pampered Chef, or Stella and Dot, and after you make a small investment to get started, you can start selling your merchandise. How much you work depends entirely on how much you want to earn.

Pay: 20-30% of sales in commissions 

Becoming a Customer Service Rep

This job requires good communication skills and a lot of patience, but if you have both of these skills, this job could be a good fit for you. You’ll be helping customers place orders and resolve conflicts, and you usually can choose whether you want to work part-time or full-time. One thing to keep in mind is that many companies require you to be available for four-hour blocks of time, so make sure that works for you before you sign up.

Pay: $8-$18 per hour
