It's not what money is that is important, but what money does.
For a Retiree, What Does Money Mean?
It's a means of protection and comfort. It gives you freedom from worry , and strengthens your security, and gives you the piece of mind you need to feel right.
It provides independence. Giving you the ability to do whatever you want, whenever you want, however you want - that becomes the true definition of freedom.
Control over your lifestyle. Whether you would like to spend money on travel, hobbies, home, entertainment, or gifts, you will be able to do it without restraint.
Ability to help family. As you grow in age you may consider yourself a steward of your money for your family. Gifting to your children, helping with large purchases, or contributing to grandchildren's education.
Creating a legacy. Living legacies for inheritors, estate planning, and charitable giving that comes from your growth in altruism and spirituality.
Canadians expect they'll need $756,000 for retirement.
However, 32% of Canadians between 45-64 haven't saved anything.
And the ones who are saving have set aside an average of $184,000.
Retirement planning extends beyond money.
The process is something that needs to consider life transitions, health concerns, family issues, and emotional implications that come with the choice of leaving the workforce.
