Psychological Preparedness

This area of preparedness is sometimes overlooked. It is also the area in which retired people say they struggle most. For some, "retirement" is a great reason to obtain a new job. For others it becomes a complete departure from the working life they have known. The core of psychological preparedness begins with answering four key questions:

  • What is my desire to retire? (Do I want to make this change?)
  • What will be the impacts of my retirement on myself and on those in my life?
  • How do I prepare myself and others for the changes that will occur?
  • What will give me sustainable joy during retirement?

Most likely your starting point lies somewhere between "I want to retire this second" and "Oh, I don't know, maybe in 7-10 years". Whatever your starting point, contact a KGA counselor for a confidential consultation at no cost to you. After the initial consultation, your counselor will continue to help you identify next steps, which may include exploring further services and finding resources for you.
