Why Retirement Planning is so vitally important? Retirement can be a golden period, full of adventure and fulfilment with each day bringing new joys and new experiences – but only if retirees plan for it in advance.
Most recent research indicates that over 50% of people who have not made preparations for retirement feel anxious about the approaching change, while 95% of people who have planned for retirement in advance are positive and enthusiastic about new life phase.
