Retirement can start at many different ages, but when you are age 50 - 65, you tend to start thinking about retirement. You might stop counting your number of years of experience and start counting your number of years remaining to work. These days, many Canadians stop a high-power or stress job and move to part-time or seasonal work, being "semi-retired". You may be needed to take care of aging parents or help out with young grandchildren, but many in this age range are starting to feel that they are able to balance their work and their life.
Preparing for Emergencies
What happens if you owe a $10,000 dental bill? Or you need medication or treatments not covered by our provincial healthcare plan? What if you are laid off and lose your health and dental benefits? What if your are injured while out of the country? What if you suddenly are diagnosed with a critical illness? What would happen if, as you age, you become unable to do the activities of daily living for yourself?
What happens if you can't pay your mortgage? If you die or become disabled? Planning ahead for these emergencies can provide peace of mind.
