Do you want to retire happy? One trap in retirement planning is to think of retirement as one thing, a singular phase of life. It’s not. Things evolve and change. Dr. Riley Moynes has developed a useful framework of the Four Phases of Retirement that can help you plan for a satisfying retirement. And you’ll want to hear what phase most retirees get stuck in – and how to progress to the fourth phase where the happiest retirees live.
Riley Moynes joins us from Ontario.

On Phase 4 Retirement
“…only about 50 to 60% of retirees break through to Phase Four. Not everyone gets there. But those who are able to break through to Phase Four are some of the happiest, most productive, satisfied, and gratified people t I have ever met. Phase Four is when we rewire and find something new that really, really hits us and that we just squeeze all the juice out.”
On Planning Ahead for Retirement
“…be thinking ahead of what are some of their strengths, what are some of the things that they love to do and to be considering ways, well before they retire, that they might be able to apply those things when they do retire. And so to be able to have kind of a network that they might have built up or to look at some at some possibilities in advance, I think is extremely helpful.”
