Preparing for retirement
Retirement is a huge step in anyone’s life. You may be looking forward to it, to the extra time it will give you for leisure and relaxation, or you may be worried that you will lose friends, income and feel less valued. Either way it is important to prepare well for retirement.
You may need to think carefully about how you will spend your time. This could include voluntary work, classes or courses, or gardening.
You may also need to think about how you will have enough money, both to eat properly, and keep warm, and in order to do some of the things you would like to do. You may be able to claim benefits, and you may be able to cut the cost of utilities.
At some point, you may also want to think about your housing choices.
