Are you ready to be a 21st century retiree?

We’re almost 19 years into the new century, so it seems a little late to be talking about the “new” 21st century version of retirement. Or does it?

For those in their 50s or 60s approaching retirement, I don’t think so. If you’re getting close to retirement, you likely have parents who retired in the last century. Pre-internet, pre-smartphone, pre-Amazon delivery on demand. There’s a good chance that at least one parent is still alive, and, like it or not, our “vision” of retirement is shaped by those living it now.

And those living it now made retirement decisions based on life in the 20th century. We may consciously want a different type of retirement, but subconsciously we can be influenced by our parent’s retirement path, whether we know it or not.

So, how could your retirement decisions be different than those of your parents? Here are a few things to consider.

The 21st century has been with us for while – and there are more options out there than you may have realized for your retirement. Make sure your plans reflect it.
