Abstract: The present study aim is to determine the impact of the attitudes of retired academicians towards work post-retirement keeping in purview job satisfaction and age. A questionnaire administered in this regard 240 retired academicians who were approached for filling it. In the present study, Hayes process which provides macros to examine the mediating and moderating effects was applied. It examines the role of attitude towards work (predictor variable) on the post retirement work intentions (outcome variable) through the mediator (job satisfaction)-moderator (age). The result of this study shows that the tested model is significant, thus implying that post retirement work intentions are positively affected by the attitude towards work and mediator-moderator model significantly affects the same. The study suggests that the experience of academicians can be further utilised by creating post retirement work intentions.
