Resources for Planning and Making the Most of Your Retirement Lifestyle

Retirement is a time of opportunity and choice and hopefully these days we have 25 years or more of good active life ahead of us, when we retire, or partially retire.

At LaterLife we have specialised in retirement for over 12 years and we run the most extensive schedule of pre-retirement courses in the UK at over 40 locations all around the UK.

We hope you will come and enjoy one of our workshops as many thousands of people do, but in the meantime we provide here on the Retirement Planning site a few of our resources to help you make the most of your retirement!

Our when to retire and why plan for retirement guides here on the site provide an overview of why and what you need to think about when you are starting to think about planning your retirement and deciding when to retire. You'll find them invaluable starting points.

Once you realise just how important it is to plan your retirement, you can either use our Planning Retirement Online facility

or we very much hope you will attend one of our
one day retirement workshops around the UK



You might also like to try our

Free 'How ready are you to retire?' online self assessor
(opens in new window)


Free 'Retirement MOT' if you are already retired
(opens in new window)

In both cases a quick series of 20 questions establishes how well you are doing,  gives you a score out of 100 and highlights where you need to take action.

Each self-assessor opens in a new window. When you have finished just close the window and you will return here.


You might also like to have a look at our associated
site which provides lots of information, articles and resources for enjoying life over 50 and into retirement.

In particular we have a Retirement Guides section on the site and although they are more related to once you have retired, you might find
Making the most of our money
Concessions & discounts
relevant to your retirement planning too.

If you do visit the site then do sign up for the free laterlife email newsletters which tell you about the new articles each month (we run part of the site like a monthly magazine) and aim to give you lots of ideas and offers to make the most of later life.
