Older workers face a series of critical decisions as they transition from the workforce into retirement. These decisions include deciding when to retire, whether to work part-time, when to claim Social Security, how to deploy savings in retirement, selecting medical insurance, protecting against the risk of long-term care, where to live, how to enhance your health and longevity, and nurturing your social portfolio.
