The Quality of Life

MIT AgeLab has identified three questions you should ask your clients to assess how prepared they are to live well in retirement:

  1. Who will change my light bulbs?
  2. How will I get an ice cream cone?
  3. Who will I have lunch with?

What do these questions have to do with retirement planning? A lot more than you might think. They actually uncover important factors about aging in place, staying mobile, and maintaining a strong social network in retirement. These factors can serve as a starting point for planning a satisfying retirement.
