A retirement coach will not only help to plan financial aspects, but also will help the retiree consider how they will spend their time after they retire and how their work friends will behave once they don’t see each other everyday. When people plan to retire they automatically think of leisure but often retirees don’t know how they want to spend their increased leisure time.
Family and marital relationships can also become a source of stress once you have retired unless you take steps to insure this doesn’t happen. How will your partner react or be influenced by your retirement? If you are both retiring at the same time or you are joining a spouse who is already retired, how will it be to spend a significantly larger proportion of time with them? How much time together or apart will each of you need and want? What anticipations do your relatives have about all the free time that you may have, and do those expectations complement what you plan to do?
As you can see, planning for your retirement can be far more complicated than you thought and the support and structure of a retirement coach may be just what you need to help things run more smoothly.
