RTE’s Morning Edition invited the Retirement Planning Council onto the show to speak about some of the issues people should be considering as they approach retirement.

Talking to programme host Keelin Shanley about some of these considerations, Elizabeth Carvill of the Retirement Planning Council spoke about the importance of focusing on the lifestyle changes ahead as well making financial preparations.  These are the key issues address by the Council in the pre-retirement courses it delivers.

Elizabeth was joined on the panel by Jim McNulty who recently retired and attended one of the Retirement Planning Council pre-retirement courses in advance.  Jim gave insight into his own experience of retirement so far and talked about some of what he took away from the course he completed.
