Event description

Description

The decision to stop working full-time is one of the biggest decisions you will make. Attending a workshop will help inform that decision and support you to plan and prepare fully to ensure it is a healthy and happy experience.

The removal of the default retirement age means that the decision about when to embark on this next stage in your life is entirely your own. Each person’s life is unique to them and so the aspirations, goals, hopes and fears behind this decision are personal to you. Any big decision brings with it an ending of the old and a new beginning. So, considering all the key questions, thinking through your hopes and educating yourself on the financial and legal considerations of changing your working status are all critical planning steps.

This full day workshop will help anyone over the age of 50 to better prepare for later life and feel much better informed about their future plans.
