Retirement The Golden Years

We have worked long enough and hard enough and have reached an age where going to work everyday no longer appeals.  It is time to retire and enjoy the Golden years of our life.

We wanted to prepare you for the years prior to your retirement and give you this timeline of events leading up to your golden years.

Ten years prior to retirement you will start getting letters from AARP to join them and the millions of other senior citizens who enjoy the motel and travel discounts.

Five years away and your mailbox is going to be filled with investment opportunities in gold and reverse mortgage plans and information on how to help you choose the right financial planner.

 At the two year mark you’re flooded with flyers about supplemental insurance programs, medical information about diabetes and Viagra, all to help you in your upcoming golden years.

At last you are only a year away and the mail changes to community retirement centers, hearing aids and electric scooters to help you get around your house.

Once you retire, you finally have time to peruse the mail and sort out the pre paid funeral plans, wills and the college information waiting to help you return to school so you can start a new and promising career.

With that being said, we have gathered articles that will help you as you approach and live out your golden years to their fullest.
