Course DescriptionRetirement for many of us can already be a fact of life. For others, it is looming on the horizon and the closer we get the more uneasy we feel about that next step. We are filled with questions about just how we will pay for our retirement. What will it cost? How much will you get from Social Security? What if you do not wish to quit working entirely, but are being forced into retirement by your company? Are you ready for retirement emotionally?
This online class will address a number of these issues and give you a place to start. Financial concerns regarding IRA's, insurance, and what you should do with your house will be addressed. Specific health recommendations will be made to maximize your physical condition during retirement. And what about your social and family relationships? Most of us have allowed these very important relationships to lapse when our happiness during retirement is actually based on them.Finally, we will talk about how to prepare for retirement and what you will do with your time. There are many of us who really wanted to do something else with our lives. Once you retire from your "real" job, you may be very pleasantly surprised to realize that you can now finally pursue the life of your dreams.

Lesson 1. The Plan for RetirementFar too many people have only a vague idea of what retirement is, and therefore simply wait for it to happen and make no plans for it. This is a recipe for disaster.
Lesson 2. InvestingThe last third of our lives can be spent in that state commonly referred to as "retirement".
Lesson 3. More Sources of Retirement IncomeSocial Security was initially established in 1935 as a social insurance plan to provide supplementary income for retired or disabled individuals.
Lesson 4. Other Sources of Retirement IncomeThe first piece of real estate to consider in your retirement is your own home. If you have owned your home for years and not tapped into the equity for any reason, you could realize a great deal of money from it.
Lesson 5. Unexpected or Unanticipated ExpensesTaxes have been a constant, examples include sales tax, property tax, income tax, and others. Most Americans have managed to handle taxes without becoming intimately involved.
Lesson 6. Investing In HealthNow that we have given you a good understanding of your financial retirement responsibilities, it is time to address the other vital concerns to help ensure a terrific retirement phase of your life.
Lesson 7. Family LifeRetirement is when you reap what you have been sowing all these years. Only this lesson is about family and not about money.
Lesson 8. Silver and GoldAny social relationship is typically based on proximity and convenience. They arise out of our daily activities, school, church, and work. Look at your own social circle.
Lesson 9. Developing Interests and Self-WorthMany of us envision retirement as that long awaited endless summer vacation. We have been vigilant about preparing ourselves financially and when the big day finally arrives, many of us are disappointed.
Lesson 10. Where To LiveRetirement often brings to mind places of infinite sunshine, and a number of retirees sell everything and move to Florida or Arizona. For some, this is like moving to paradise.
Lesson 11. How to Live the Life of Your DreamsBy now you will have discovered that retirement is not a short period where you sit around waiting to die.
