One of the first key steps to planning for retirement is to have a retirement vision. After all, this makes intuitive sense because whenever you plan, you need to establish your goals, wants and needs first. The clearer your vision, the better the planning process will be.

When most people think of retirement, they imagine leaving a job they’re tired of, getting out of the rat race and leaving the pressures of employment behind. Often retirement is viewed as a reward for time in the workforce and a benefit of successful financial planning.

But retirement is so much more than giving up a job and relaxing. Retirees are entering one of the most exciting and challenging stages of their life. It can be a time to draw on personal and professional experiences to open new doors of opportunity and education. It can be a time to realise potential and accomplish goals previously delayed by careers and raising a family.

Although the opportunities are endless, a successful retirement doesn’t come without its hurdles. There are many things to consider in order to get it right, such as living on a reduced income, creating a health and wellness strategy and evaluating relationships. Also important is the allocation of personal time, determining living arrangements and recognizing change in social roles. Retirement planning is one of the most important aspects of Financial Planning, because of the complexity and constantly changing rules, the input of a professional and independent adviser is essential.
