Looking forward to retirement

It may be only a few years away to retirement, or it may be several, but eventually retirement planning becomes a concern for all of us. Whatever situation you find yourself in there are programs, books and online sites to help you get all the information you need for your particular retirement plans. You can attend retirement information programs at the library or use the Canadian Retirement Income Calculator for an estimate of your future financial needs and status. If you are closer to retirement you can go straight to the Canada Pension Plan website to learn about the application process, benefits available and to get the application kit. Since we all can't win the lottery it means the most of us should probably become familiar with books and blogs to prepare for the lazy, hazy days of retirement. Pat
