Yes, this is a frivolous topic. Help settle a good-natured disagreement between my sister and me.

I recently retired from my full-time job as a school-based speech-languge pathologist. Now, I'm doing part-time independent contracting as a speech-language pathologist. My sister and I discussed whether I should be considered "retired" or "employed part time". Technically, as an independent contractor, I'm not an employee. But I am still working.

So, what do I check when I'm completing surveys? Employed part-time or retired.

I'm retired and I don't do what you are thinking; the only teaching I do (I'm a retired teacher) is quilting classes. But I've been an independent contractor, part time, and I considered myself as Employed Part-Time. I have a friend who retired-retired (as in she's 65) and now works as an independent contractor for a medical office. She's considered being Employed Part Time.

I always put down "Self-employed", since it's what I am, and I work part time.

Not retirement age, though, but I work from home and my options are unemployed or stay at home spouse.

Take your pick -- either one would be correct. Or you can check the box that says, "prefer not to answer."

If you're using the word "work", then you're employed. If it's a hobby and you're just having fun, then that's retirement.
