Q: My husband and I are both scheduled to retire next year. Our finances seem to be in order. What else should we be doing?
A: Your husband is going to love this answer: talk, talk, talk about that train coming down the tracks! Okay, you can read about it too but please, just as you have planned for this phase financially, now it the time to plan for the emotional, physical, social, and mental changes headed your way. Get yourself some good books – there are plenty of them out there. (Check out my recommendations.) Be proactive and you’ll find yourselves enjoying a wonderful phase of life!
