When you think about retirement, do you imagine yourself on the golf course? Taking long naps in the hammock? Or possibly re-entering the workforce? People are living longer, healthier lives than ever before, resulting in extended retirement years. A 30-year horizon can feel daunting for many of us. We worry if we’ve saved enough money to get us through, and we wonder how we’ll occupy all that time. In truth, most retirees don’t relish the idea of 30 years of leisure. That’s probably why nine million Americans over the age of 50 have opted to go back to work after retiring, and nearly half of today’s workers say they plan to join them.
Back to work you go?
“We have been given a gift of longevity that will enable us to redefine what retirement means. Do you find the idea of the next phase of life being dominated by leisure activities less appealing as you approach retirement? Are you searching for an interim step to retirement that includes staying actively involved and contributing in a meaningful way while still having time for personal pursuits?
As a mid-life career changer, I know firsthand how daunting the prospect of redefining and retooling yourself for a new career can be. I also know the joy and satisfaction of building something new. At FAI, I use my personal experience as well as my financial planning expertise to help my clients re-envision what retirement means to them while helping them understand the financial implications of an encore career.
At FAI, we’ll help you explore alternatives to a traditional retirement that can help re-energize you, reawaken personal passions long forgotten or fulfil dreams that have been put on hold.”
