Week 5: Retirement Plan

Week 5: Retirement Plan

Develop a personal retirement plan.

This may be far too early for you to develop a realistic retirement plan; however, to begin thinking of some of the major issues that you likely will confront may be potentially helpful.  Chapter 10 of your text (Quadagno) likely will provide ideas that might serve as a foundation for reflecting on your report. This assignment is to submit a retirement plan to your instructor in the assignment section that includes the following components:

  1. Preferred (realistically) age of retirement
  2. Anticipated income (in today’s dollars)
  3. Likely lifestyle changes
  4. Likely health-promotion activities
  5. Likely family (immediate and extended) activities

Submit this as an attached document (.doc, .docx, or .rtf) to this assignment.
