WHY PLANNING YOUR RETIREMENT IS VITAL
Life has a habit of disappearing quickly. It seems the older you get, the faster time goes. After a busy working life juggling family and work commitments, and trying to squeeze in some personal goals and interests, reaching retirement can bring a sense of relief… or it can bring a feeling of trepidation. On the one hand, many commitments and obligations fall away. On the other hand, the loss of those commitments and obligations also comes with the loss of income and creates a vacuum of time to be filled.
The time before retirement is the time to re-evaluate what is important in your life and plan ahead so that the available time and financial resources are used for the things that really matter. Being proactive about how you manage time and money will bring more fruitful outcomes than simply going with the flow.
- Retirement is full of uncertainties:
- How much money will I need?
- How long will I live?
What rate of return will I get on my investments?
Standing at the gateway to retirement, a new world stretches out before you, full of
unknowns but potentially the most rewarding years of your life. These days, retirees can
expect to live up to thirty or so years in retirement. It’s up to you whether they are the
best or the worst years of your life.
The aim of this course is to equip you with knowledge and tools to deal with the uncertainties
and have a fabulous retirement.
