A Meaningful Retirement: Beyond Finances

Buckingham Advisors set to provide a free, educational session focusing on non-financial aspects of retirement planning

DAYTON, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Retirement planning goes beyond ensuring financial stability. It encompasses non-financial aspects essential for achieving a fulfilling and meaningful retirement. To address this need for more comprehensive retirement planning, Buckingham Advisors is on June 6, 2024 hosting a retirement readiness session titled, “A Meaningful Retirement: Beyond Finances.” Established in 1987, Buckingham Advisors is an independent financial advisory firm that provides investment management, financial planning, tax, and business services from the company’s four office locations across Ohio.

During this fun, educational session, attendees will engage in a series of exercises centered on non-financial retirement issues to help avoid common pitfalls and mistakes that people often experience during their transition to retirement. The session is designed for individuals approaching retirement in the next two to three years or those who have recently retired. The session’s objective is to assist attendees in creating a written plan that defines their work identity in retirement, ensures their time is meaningfully filled, keeps them relevant and connected, and promotes mental and physical activity.

Approximately 65% of people do not include non-financial aspects in their retirement planning. According to a T. Rowe Price study, while 74% of pre-retirees make financial plans for their retirement, only 35% consider emotional and psychological preparation (Physician on FIRE)​​ (T. Rowe Price)​. This indicates a significant gap in holistic retirement planning, emphasizing the need to address factors such as lifestyle changes, social engagement, and personal fulfillment, in addition to financial security.

“Often times, non-financial questions can be the most neglected in retirement planning and can lead to frustration and initial disappointment in retirement,” stated session presenter Marla Chambers, CPA, CFP®, CPRC. “Neglecting the non-financial considerations of retirement can lead retirees to spend their early years of retirement without the purpose they thought they would have.”

This free, educational session is open to all interested in attending. There are in-person and virtual options available.
