Chuck Bentley Answers: How Can I Prepare for Retirement?

Dear Chuck,

My wife is urging me to retire. I am not ready yet and do not know if I ever will be. I enjoy working. However, what do you think are the best financial moves to be ready?

Dear Prepping for Retirement,

This year has caused many people to consider retirement. There are several factors to consider which I address below.

From the way you stated your question, I think it would be wise to discuss this and pray with your wife to be sure you are united about the issue of if and when you should retire. There is great strength in being united with your wife. She will have insights and intuition that will help clarify your decisions and plans.
