The psychology of retirement

Season 2 Episode 30

The psychology of retirement

When it comes to making plans for retirement, many people focus their time and energy on the financial aspects – investments, taxes, insurance, estate plans, health care and more. But what about the psychological impact of retiring? In this episode of Edelman Financial Engines’ Everyday Wealth™, Jean and wealth planners Isabel Barrow and Andy Smith explore the stressors of retirement and what you can do to help reduce stress and live the comfortable retirement you deserve. Then, Dr. Riley Moynes, retired educator and author of The Four Phases of Retirement: What to Expect When You’re Retiring, joins the conversation to shed light on what the four phases are and how to help navigate them in a healthy way.


Ms. Chatzky receives cash compensation for acting as hosts of the Everyday Wealth radio show and podcast and for related activities and therefore has an incentive to endorse Edelman Financial Engines and its planners.  That compensation is a fixed sum paid on an annual basis; and reimbursement for certain expenses.  The amount paid each year does not vary, is not based on show content or any results-dependent factors (e.g., popularity of the show).

This show is pre-recorded, and any callers are prescreened.
