Are You Ready for Today’s Retirement?

Retirement Ain’t What it Used to Be

More and more people are choosing to work into their traditional retirement years.

See Also: Work and Retirement

Whether it’s a necessity or a choice, many people of traditional retirement age work. Some continue in their careers, others take part-time jobs to stay busy or make a bit of extra income and some take their hobbies and turn them into money makers because they love it.

Those who don’t work are still redefining the idea of retirement through rewarding volunteer work with local nonprofits or abroad with groups like Peace Corps. No matter what path is taken, it appears that today’s retirees are changing the very definition of retirement; and curious to see what’s next in their lives.

Helping People Navigate the New Retirement

Whether you’ll be working or not, there are steps you should take and consider as you move closer to your “golden years.” Many people don’t realize that you need about your mental health nearly as much as your financial health. Do you have a strong social network? What will take you out of the house once you step away from the 9 to 5?
