Your gradual retirement can benefit you and your employer. If you retire abruptly from full-time work, the transition can be a shock to your system, and to those around you, particularly your spouse. At a time when a massive number of baby boomers are reaching retirement age, many employers are concerned about finding enough skilled workers to fill their shoes. Cordasco Financial Network’s John Walker sits for me and is joined by CFN’s Brian Hillsberg to discuss the concept of easing into retirement by making a gradual transition. They discuss some of the perceived obstacles and detail the many benefits realized by employees and employers when a long-time employee enters retirement in phases. They also share a recent case study where together they helped facilitate a slow transition to retirement with excellent results.
