Planning Your Transition to Retirement is Still a Smart Move

They say 60 is the new 40. And while it’s true that today’s over-50s are healthy and active for longer than previous generations, many in this position begin to dream about scaling back their work commitments so they can start ticking off their bucket list. This often triggers the age-old question: Do I have enough to retire?

Transition to retirement

What are your goals for retirement?

You may want the flexibility to travel more, volunteer or take up a hobby. Perhaps you want to look after the grandkids for a day or two a week. It might be you see your 60s as an opportunity to switch careers or try your hand at freelance work or consulting

Winding back the hours

One way to achieve a better work/life balance in the lead-up to retirement is to adopt a transition to retirement income stream (TRIS).

A win-win solution

Easing your way out of work can be as good for you financially as it is for you psychologically. To go cold turkey from working one day to retirement the next can be difficult without careful planning.

Working out what to do in the run up to retirement needs careful consideration. We can help you decide what will work best for you.
