Everything you need to do before retirement

Retiring is a huge transition in a person’s life and there are many things that need to be considered before taking the plunge.  This article talks about preparations for retirement such as budgeting, setting up your Social Security benefits, health care choices, lifestyle and relationship issues.  Going into retirement without a plan or inadequate savings can send a person into a tailspin and give them the feeling that they have lost their purpose or identity.  Of all of the things mentioned, budgeting takes the top priority.  In your budget, be sure to be honest and put in realistic spending amounts.  Make sure to add in hobbies and entertainment because you won’t want to be sitting around your home all day. 02.14.19
