Course Description

Navigating the New Chapter of Retirement

Retirement—once considered the sunset of one’s career—is now emerging as an exciting new chapter, rife with opportunities, choices, and challenges. For many, retirement has transitioned from being a brief respite following a life of work to a significant period, often spanning decades. Contemporary data suggests that retirees today can anticipate a lengthy and active retirement. Given this expanded timeframe, the preparation for retirement is no longer just about finances—it's also about health, emotional well-being, and social connectivity.

If retirement is already your reality, or if it’s a speck on the horizon growing larger with each passing day, questions undoubtedly arise. How will you finance this chapter? What does Social Security provide? What if you aren’t emotionally prepared for this change, or if circumstances push you into retirement earlier than expected?
