Retirement Ready

Retirement is not just about the money. Get the bigger picture!

Retirement Ready offers a personal and practical guide to making the most of the exciting opportunities of retirement, and meeting its inevitable challenges. While life is uncertain, planning for this stage of life gives the best possibilities for living well in retirement.

How does it work?

Retirement Ready doesn’t just look at finances. It helps you prepare for your retirement in a whole-of-life way.

Retirement Ready consists of 6 workshops, with each session lasting 1 hour 15 minutes. Filmed experts provide the information, paired with facilitated group discussions.

Each session ends with challenges to complete at home and discuss at the next workshop. This provides opportunities to receive feedback and encouragement from each other as you share and discuss your challenges.
