Retirement is a time of great change, and a chance to begin an exciting new phase of your life. But like anything done well, it takes planning. While everyone thinks they are ready to retire, not everyone is truly prepared. That’s why Retirement Options created its retirement readiness assessments, the LifeOptions Profile™ and the Retirement Success Profile™. Feedback from these assessments helps individuals gauge their current retirement readiness and build a comprehensive plan to live their retirement dreams.

Should you take a retirement readiness assessment? Answer these eight short, seemingly straight-forward questions to help you determine if a retirement readiness assessment is right for you.
