Retirement Yenta’s former boss, Jerry Golden, is blogging about Retirement. RY thinks Jerry has some good advice about anticipating Retirement in two stages. Jerry sees the first stage of retirement as being very active, doing things you didn’t have time for before. In the second stage, he suggests you might be dealing with costs of health care, a home aide, or other expenses that you didn’t anticipate. As you know all too well, dear Readers, RY is a believer in various stages of Retirement. She has her own Retirement Levels approach (10 Levels) to joining the Relaxationforce. Your dear Yenta likes to ease slowly into the Relaxationforce, finding time to practice for Retirement. This is a period where one is still working full-time. She then moves to part-time Relaxationforce/Workforce life balance. RY’s levels are fluid and can move to more or less work as one desires. This Yenta is a FIRM believer that you should be prepared to spend a significant amount of your Retirement Income on Pre-Retirement in the Sky (end of life) Care.
So, dear Readers, RY thinks today is a good day to look at your Retirement Levels. Consider where you are in the Workforce (or Relaxationforce) and consider where you want to be in 10 years, 20 years, and how you will prepare for your Retirement in the Sky. Set your goals now. Don’t wander blindly into the Relaxationforce…you might get hit by an old lady in a Hoveround.
