When Should You Retire?
One of the biggest decisions we make in life is deciding when to retire. Should you wait until age 70? Retire on schedule in your sixties? Or do you head out early and retire in your fifties? You’ll find just as many opinions as the number of people you ask.
Regardless of which age you chose, research has shown that those who are the happiest in retirement start planning at least five years ahead of their actual retirement date and for good reasons. There are so many things to consider when deciding when to retire: How long will the money you have saved last? Do you want to maintain your current lifestyle or scale up/down? Is travel in your future? What about the cost of living? How active do you want to be? Will you want to work from home? Start a new business venture? Take up a new hobby? So many things to consider!
Just as important as when you retire is where you retire. Should you stay where you are and continue to enjoy the area you currently call home. Maybe you should expand your horizons and hit the road in an RV. Or maybe you should think about flying south.
