For the most part the current retirement age is now 67 to 68. It was as low as 65 for men and 60 for women, now 62. As we live longer the age that we retire at has begun to rise in line with a modern society’s economy and demographic. We are an aging population and this trend appears to be continuing. In theory you can retire at any age if you have the financial support to do so. The Government is unconcerned about your retirement. They will start the state one at the state set age and not before. Therefore if you are planning to do so it would be wise to have a word with a pension planner so that you can have something in place.
Where will you live? At least the answer here is easy. There are plenty of options but one that is very popular is a place like Park Homes For Sale where you will find a like minded and open community.
It is a sad fact that the 1 or even 2 storey home that you live in now may not be suitable going forward into your retirement and you should look at the options available to you and plan ahead.
