  • K Addison


The general purpose of this study was to find out the factors that contributed to or accounted for post-retirement satisfaction among Ghanaian workers; and whether teacher retirees and non-teacher retirees differ in their post-retirement satisfaction with all those factors that account for post-retirement satisfaction. After reviewing, the literature eight main research questions were formulated to guide the study. Simple random sampling procedure was used to select 230 respondents for the study. The instrument for the study was the questionnaire. Data were analysed using correlations, cross-tabulations and chi square test of independence. The major findings from the study are as follows; Retirees in general are quite satisfied with all the indicators of post-retirement satisfaction. However, a larger proportion of non-teacher retirees as opposed to teacher retirees were satisfied with their post-retirement satisfaction.
