In your 60’s? Use your financial freedom wisely

by Rocket Finance

I had some major site problems last night. Therefore, I was unable to spend my usual time on this post. I had planned to participate in the Money Advice for the Ages project being led by Madison from My Dollar Plan. Here are a couple of thoughts that I may elaborate in the future:

  • Don’t just retire because you can, retire because you want to.

  • Retirement is an opportunity to serve – family, humanity, God, and more.

  • Happy retirees still have goals in life. What are yours?

  • Frugal retirees have the opportunity to be philanthropic with their time.

  • Look for opportunities to give advice (especially financial) to loved ones in your life.

  • Remember your church in your estate plan.

  • Write down your thoughts about life – keep a journal.

As those of you in your 60’s look toward retirement, you may enjoy What’s your retirement story? a guest post at My Dollar Plan and be sure to check for great retirement advice from Ciaran at Chance Favors the Prepared Mind.

    Yes, retire because we want to. I think if people can retire early they should do so. So they can bond with their family more and the most important think is to keep their health in a good shape.
