Millions of baby boomers will retire in the next few years - and many are about to find out that successful retirements do not happen automatically. To have a happy and fulfilling retirement, John Brady, Founder of http://www.Topretirements.com, points out “Takes some basic planning and awareness of how to navigate a variety of complex issues. Some of those include: where to retire, budgeting, and accommodating your spouse’s dreams as well as your own”. To help make it easier for boomers to survive retirement, Topretirements has just published “The Baby Boomers Retirement Survival Guide”.
10 Issues to Navigate
The Topretirements Guide provides practical tips for mastering 10 critical skills for surviving retirement:
Planning. Like so many other tasks in life, a successful retirement takes planning. This new Guide even links to a sample Retirement Plan so simple it fits on a 3 x 5 card.
Financial. The greatest problem retirees face is outliving their money. The Topretirements Guide has tips on how to develop a simple budget to see exactly where you stand now, and what to do if there is a shortfall.
Leisure time. What will you do with all the time you save working and commuting? Finding something meaningful to do can help avoid the depression and unhappiness many retirees experience.
Positive Attitude. Everything in your life will probably not be perfect. But being determined to be positive will win you friends and a lot more joy.
Part time job or new career? Whether it is a financial necessity or just the need to do something different, the Guide offers practical ideas on how to get started with part time work or launching an encore career.
Volunteering. There are plenty of volunteer jobs, if you know where to look. The Guide will get you started.
Couples. Whether you retire at the same time as your spouse or years later, couples find themselves with a number of issues to work through. One of the biggest is how to agree upon a place to retire. How will you handle your new time together? The Guide offers practical advice on anticipating and working through the details to keep your relationship strong.
Friends and family. When you retire you will discover how much your working life was part of your social network. If you move to a new area, the Guide offers strategies for developing new friends. And of course you need to work out how close, or how far away, you want to live from children, grandchildren, and other relatives.
Traveling. Getting on the road or taking long trips and cruises can be fun. Here are some ideas on how to get started and get the most for your money.
Planning for the long term. Retirement is not a static thing - your life at age 65 will be very different than what it is at 85. Planning for change is crucial to avoid unpleasant surprises later on.
