I have been dealing with the topic of the transition to retirement for the past 25 years. During this time, I’ve worked with clients considering retirement at many different times in their lives. Some have retired at the “normal” retirement age of 65 while others have retired by age 50 or deferred to age 75 and even 80.
Statistically speaking, we know women expect to outlive their husbands.
Harvard Health reported in 2016 that 57% of those ages 65 and up are female, while 67% of those who reach age 85 are women. The average woman lives five years longer than the average man in the U.S.

As people age, happiness is often based on connections with family and friends. Some of us may not have those ready-made ties and perhaps need to look elsewhere to stay active and engaged. Having a job may be the answer. But I often hear seniors say, “I can’t work. I’ll lose my Social Security.”
The use of beneficiary designations is one issue that is not well understood and can lead to much confusion.
Most people think it is a simple matter of naming a person to receive certain assets by will or trust or naming them as a beneficiary of a retirement plan. I only wish it were that simple!
I wasn’t old enough to rent a car, but in my early 20s a major brokerage firm recruited me to become a stockbroker. I was excited until I figured out that I’d just committed to a career of telemarketing.
