Definitions of successful retirement abound. There are as many formulae for successful retirement as there are retirees. Finding yours, however, may require intense and deliberate determination. One does not fall into a happy or successful or fulfilling retirement just because one has reached that magic age for retiring.

For those who are identified as seniors, that age varies. For some, it can be as early as 55. Why, I have even known some who have maneuvered their retirement in their 40’s. That leaves a lot of time for imaginatively and creatively identifying ways to invest time and interests. For many, retirement is tied to the age of 65/66, when Social Security and Medicare benefits are scheduled to kick in. Some slip it in earlier, say around 62, but must adjust their income expectations accordingly.
