The traditional form of retirement, where you work up to a certain day and then stop completely, is becoming a littler outdated. We know retirees who have never been as busier, since they stopped going to work.
The key to a successful retirement is being able to do what you want to do with your time, not what you feel you have to do.
Some retirees work part time, some volunteer, some devote themselves to family, some go back to study, some take up a new hobby, some travel the world… and some do all of the above.
Your financial planner’s job is to maximise your ability to spend your retirement doing the things you want to do, stress free.
