How do you know when it’s time to retire?

Finances aren’t the only factor at play—health, boredom, purpose, and more all contribute to decisions about when to clock out of the work life.

Do I have enough money saved? How will I spend my time once I’m no longer working? What if I have a medical emergency or accident? 

These are just some of the questions that we all face when thinking about retirement. It’s not an easy decision, and everyone thinks about it differently.

Reset talks about retirement with Chicago Sun-Times columnist Mary Mitchell, Suburban Cook County Area Agency on Aging President Diane Slezak, and listeners.
