Voluntary Retirement Incentive Programs

Introductory Retirement Course - March 11 at 6:00 pm

An introductory retirement course is available to all eligible Voluntary Retirement Incentive Program participants.

For many people considering retirement, a big question is, what will you do when you retire? The reality of getting up each morning and not going to work is both a joy and a concern for many people considering retirement. In this short course, we will discuss self-identity in retirement, retirement transition readiness, as well as what you will do in retirement once you transition from your pre-retirement career.

At the end of this session, you will leave with an informed personal action plan that will get you started on your retirement lifestyle journey.

The focus of this session includes

  • Identify activities and relationships that will act as the cornerstones of a retirement lifestyle
  • Define roadblocks and key determinants necessary for people considering retirement
  • Revisit, re-evaluate and redefine self-identity and interests
  • Identify critical areas and actions they need to prepare a personal action plan that will help them live the retirement lifestyle that they want
