Preparing for retirement

This workshop provides information about preparing for retirement policies and processes in Curtin, and includes a question and answer session.

Retirement - A New Direction in Life:

You may have done some financial planning for retirement, but what other planning should you do?

This workshop will highlight factors other than financial planning necessary for a happy retirement including selecting appropriate retirement activities and strategies for adjusting to retirement. Issues to be covered include:

  • That successful retirement requires planning
  • That planning involves an examination of current work and personal circumstances
  • That stress is an inevitable part of change
  • That stress is reduced if change is incremental;
  • Successful ageing requires engagement in social activities that are meaningful and include a healthy balanced lifestyle.

Hypothetical cases will be presented and participants will have the opportunity to discuss these cases and interact with other participants and the presenters.
