Whether you’re at retirement age, soon to reach it, or still a way off it’s never too early or too late to make plans for your retirement.
The retirement landscape looks a lot different these days to how it did just twenty years ago. A lot fewer people are going to qualify for ‘final salary pensions’ as was fairly standard just a couple of decades ago. The Government still has the state pension age under review and there’s every likelihood that will continue to increase as we’re living longer and therefore our working years are stretching out. Also, many people are not quite ready to ‘slow down’ in their 60s or 70s yet – for many of us that’s the time we’d like to shake things up a little and start making the most of our free time.
Retirement Planning is not one size fits all. Everyone is going to be looking to get something different out of their retirement and will be approaching it with different thoughts and feelings. What is universally recognised however is the desire to be financially secure during retirement. But retirement planning is not just about finances. There’s a lot to consider and we want our residents at Retirement Villages Group to be as happy and enriched in their retirement as they possibly can be.
It’s a time to thrive, so following are our top 7 tips we’ve picked up over 35 years of running retirement communities to help you make the most of your retirement years…
