Product Description


What does the idea of retirement mean to you? Trying to live on too little money? failing health? boredom? loneliness? loss of identity? Or does it spell hopes for a time when, free from the pressures of paid employment, you can develop new skills or indulge life-long dreams, broaden your outlook, and see people and places you had too little time for when you were working. In "The Which? Guide to an Active Retirement", "Which?" expertise is brought to bear on all the issues that affect everyone approaching or embarking on retirement, including: taking stock and redefining the priorities in your life; maximizing your income from pensions and other sources; keeping your tax liability to an absolute minimum; working after formal retirement, whether in a new job, setting up a business or joining the voluntary sector; and making tax-efficient arrangements for passing on your money. Also included is a chapter on making provision for long-term care, as well as a Good Health Guide, with sections on healthy eating, exercise and common health problems. A substantial address section will help you follow up the many leads suggested in the "Guide".
