Last week we asked if you are ready for retirement:
First we asked if you were suddenly summoned to the HR department for an exist interview, how prepared are you:
35% said "I am ready."
22% said "I am scared."
22% said "Can't possibly be happening to me"
Another 22% offered comments:
|| Another great adventure, glad I paid my loans when last laid off !
|| ready financially but not emotionally
|| I am a consultant and feel similar to you if I can keep my health
|| I shall retire end of this year and I am ready to take the step.
||Not quite ready.
Question 2: "I am confident I have thoroughly researched and planned the financial aspects of my retirement"
57% answered "yes"
Question 3: "I am confident I have thoroughly researched and planned the activity aspects of my retirement"
65% answered "no"
Question 4: "I am confident I have thoroughly researched and planned the physical health aspects of my retirement"
Almost an even split: 52% said "no"
