Creating your perfect retirement

Retirement has changed dramatically over the years. No longer are people simply leaving a long, loyal employment at age 65 to put their feet up.

Previously, being a pensioner was associated with a slower pace of life. Today, retirees are creating lifestyles to suit themselves; setting up businesses, exploring new hobbies and travelling.

Of course, your aspirations will be different from the next person, and they are likely to change over time. But, research from Aviva found the top six things people were most looking forward to are:

1. Travelling

2. Taking up a new hobby or continuing with old ones

3. Supporting children and grandchildren financially

4. Buying a holiday home

5. Moving abroad

6. Starting a business

Your retirement may well be 10 or 20 years down the line. It’s not unusual to be concerned about striking a balance between living for today and planning for the future. Retirement presents a brand-new chapter in life, and, as with many big events, planning is key.

We have created this guide to help you plan your perfect retirement.
