Many of us are living longer. The time you spend in retirement could now be 30 years or more, depending on when you retire and how long you live. So it’s important to think about the retirement you want, and plan for it.
We sometimes see retirement as a ‘finish line’ – but it doesn’t need to be like that. You might want to slow down or change roles, or you might have caring responsibilities for someone. Working in a different way can be a good bridge into retirement.
