Earn Money After Retirement
Taking Online Surveys

Yes, you really can earn money, after retirement, by taking online surveys!

Yes, companies will pay you to do their consumer opinion type surveys.

This is a risk-free job, as you register for free, and earn money for your time alone.

You won't make much... nothing is that easy, but you will earn a few bucks from the comfort of your own home.

If you are someone looking for some extra cash, just something simple to do while you are watching tv, or babysitting your grandchildren, this might be for you.

 If you are happy doodling on your computer every day, ticking off a few boxes, giving your two cents to opinion questions – AND earning a few bucks for your time and effort, that's great. Lots of folks really like doing these surveys and being rewarded for their opinions.

Your survey is processed with many others, as a statistical report - either for the company who requested it or for newsworthy stats. You've seen stats in newspapers or radio/tv like: “Only 50% of Seniors know what an Ipod is...” That data comes from surveys like these.

Usually you simply check off boxes on a multi-choice answer form. The stats can be easily sorted and manipulated that way, instead of all different answers from different people. Sometimes you might say which of three photos you like best (for a cereal box cover). Sometimes, but rarely, you will be asked for written opinions on something. If you choose not to participate in a survey, that's fine too.

Who Might Enjoy Completing Surveys for Income?


  • If you are looking for extra cash, just something simple to do while you are watching tv, or babysitting your grandchildren, this might be for you. 
  • If you are happy doodling on your computer every day, ticking off a few boxes, giving your two cents to opinion questions.
  • If you like to work in odd hours, midnight or 6:00 am, this might be for you too.
  • If you'd like to earn a few bucks for your time and effort, that's great.  Lots of folks really like doing these surveys and being rewarded for their opinions.

I think you've figured this out by now, but don't expect to earn big bucks. In some cases, prizes or gifts will be offered instead of pay. This is time consuming, it can be interesting and fun too, but it all takes time – your time.

What's your time worth?

SuperPayMe (below) talks about income on their site. It says: "by spending a few minutes each day completing perhaps 4-5 surveys, then earning around $100-$150 each month from these alone is easily achievable."

Not bad for working maybe an hour daily, from home, right?

How Survey Taking Works

You register with a company, or two, that you select. After you are approved, you'll get email offers. You can choose to accept, or not, each offer.

Your survey is processed with many others, as a statistical report - either for the company who requested it or for newsworthy stats. You've seen stats in newspapers or radio/tv like: “Only 50% of Seniors know what an Ipod is...” That data comes from surveys like these.

Usually you simply check off boxes on a multi-choice answer form. The stats can be easily sorted and manipulated that way, instead of all different answers from different people. Sometimes you might say which of three photos you like best (for a cereal box cover). Sometimes, but rarely, you will be asked for written opinions on something. If you choose not to participate in a survey, that's fine too.

Some retirees might do a survey for a ticket in a cash drawing, some will be happy with gift vouchers, still others want an income. It all depends on you...

Registration Process for Survey Taking Income

When you first register with a company, they ask profile questions that help them send out the surveys based on the type of person they are seeking. I will warn you that some folks don't like completing the registration profile as its often lengthy, but it's necessary so they can match surveys with your profile. 

They won't send baby food surveys to a senior citizen, but you might get AARP surveys or baker surveys if you enjoy baking. Makes sense, right? The surveys will be based on YOUR profile data.

After you register with a company or two, you'll get email surveys. If you choose to complete them, do it. If not, wait for another email and a new survey will follow. 

BEWARE – if any company is promising a get rich quick income, don't do it. You know there are scammers everywhere in life, just don't fall for it. They aren't going to pay you big bucks to sit on your computer and check off some boxes, or give your opinion on a product.

NEVER give out your phone number as it can be sold, just like advertising calls you get now.

There are so many to choose from and your needs will let you consider which work for you. Some retirees might do a survey for a ticket in a cash drawing, some will be happy with gift vouchers, others want an income. It all depends on you...

There are so many to choose from and your needs will let you consider which work for you. Any survey company should allow you to register for free... they should never charge you to apply.

Here are two companies I looked at:

SuperPayMeEach survey takes around 5-20 minutes and normally longer surveys offer a higher reward for your efforts. These paid surveys offer rewards from between $0.40 and $1.50 depending on the length of the survey. We have quite a number of surveys available.

They have an Offer Wall, and I see offers of sample Dove soap, free Diabetes wristband, register for a scoop of Baskin & Robbins ice cream, free ebook downloads, etc. You get points for whatever you do.

RewardingWaysSite Statistics:  Current Members = 282,642, Total Payments = $502,715.07 as of June 2017, when I write this. Obviously they are a large site too, but I also don't know how long they've been out there and paid out that amount!
