Earning money while helping with academic research
Since retirement one of the most interesting ways I have found to supplement my pension is by helping with academic research.
I joined Prolific which is a website that links academics from around the world with participants willing to help complete online research studies. Many studies are on psychological topics but a variety of other subjects are covered. Surveys can take from a few minutes to an hour or sometimes more. You are told in advance how long a survey will take and what the fee will be. Payment is generally about £5.00 per hour and can be made via paypal or donated to charity.
