Planning for Your Retirement: What's Next?

Planning for Your Retirement: What's Next?

Article Date September 28, 2017

So, you’re retiring! You’ve worked your entire life for this exact day, but you’re beginning to wonder, what’s next? Don’t be overwhelmed, take this change of life with stride. Like any upcoming event, set aside the time to plan what you’d like to do during this new chapter. This month, the financial planners at Synergy Group’s are sharing why it’s a good idea to plan for your retirement early.

Plan the Work, Work the Plan

You’ve planned every family vacation a year in advance. It took you almost two years to buy your home. You began conducting college searches by the time your teen entered 10th grade. And it’s no wonder why! It’s a smart move, not to mention fun, to plan for life’s new adventures. Just as you’ve planned for other events, take the time to think about what you’ll do once you settle into retirement.

Get Out and About

You’re coming up on a lot of free time on your hands; when you retire, you should plan accordingly. While many people are elated post-retirement, some feel uncertain of what they are supposed to do with all this time. If you remain engaged and socially interactive, you will always have something to do. Get out and about at least three to four times a week. Go to the bookstore instead of ordering a book online. Skip the bowl of cereal and grab breakfast with a friend. Join a gym. Don’t forget, many gym memberships are discounted or free to individuals at retirement age and many classes are geared towards older individuals.

The World is Your Oyster! Make a Bucket List.

Making a Bucket List doesn’t mean you have to plan on doing anything extravagant like sky-diving! Is there something you always wanted to do, but never had the chance? Make a list of those things and spend your retirement doing what you couldn’t do when you had a full-time job. Volunteer doing something you love, travel more, pick up an instrument you put down years ago. This time in your life is all about you! Spend this time doing what you love.

You can’t plan for everything in life, but you can plan for your retirement. For more information on getting ready for your retirement, contact Synergy Group at 412-673-7760 and schedule a free-consultation with one of our retirement advisors today!
