  • Making sure you have sufficient assets to support your retirement lifestyle
  • Making sure any health care needs can be met in the location you retire
  • Proximity to friends, family, and loved ones
  • Determining how you will spend the time previously devoted to your job
  • Developing an estate plan that is consistent with your goals
