The author of this MarketWatch article includes a great quote:
“How we plan for retirement is dictated by how we define retirement.”
He goes on to say- “We could spend as many years “post career” as you did fully employed. It means that retirement planning, which has normally been focused on making sure that you don’t exhaust your financial resources, needs to be replaced with longevity planning, so you can design a plan to use all of this newfound extra time.”
How this time is planned for is the key to a successful retirement.
