Think about your own retirement. In a 5 paragraph essay of at least 500 words, answer some or all of these questions:
Do you expect to retire at a certain age? How much preplanning will you need to do? Do you expect to retire to a life of leisure, volunteer activity, new career, and so on? Where will you live—same family home, retirement community, part of the year in the north and part in a southern resort? Do you expect to be active grandparents/great-grandparents or somewhat disengaged from your offsprings’ families? What are your overall impressions of retirement—is it positive, neutral, or negative? Why? Use at least 2 references to support your assumptions. Your references need to relate to concepts learned about retirement and must be scholarly/academic in nature. Use of .com websites is not appropriate.
