Mary Radu, MS, MSW, CPCC, Certified Professional Coach and Philanthropy Consultant Invites you to listen to a podcast of the Commonwealth Club of California!

Have you considered how you’ll be living the remainder of your lifetime?
We are all part of an aging nation and world.  For a healthy 65-year-old couple, there is a 50 percent chance that at least one will live beyond the age of 92, and a 25 percent chance at least one will live to age 97.

Let’s see what this means for you.  Look into your own crystal ball and imagine how long you expect to live, based on your heredity, your personal history and your current health and lifestyle.  Is that 95, 80, 70?  Now subtract your current age and note how many more years you have to live.  Now add 5 years onto that number for contingency planning. My hunch is you’ve got at least 5 years.  And most likely you have at least 10, 15 years, 20 years, 25 years or more years remaining!

So you see, there a good amount of time that will be impacted by the way you live starting today and the way that you plan for what will come in the future.  Even for forward-thinking individuals, the amount of planning necessary to cover your bases can be overwhelming.

I recently joined with three other professionals to provide some insights on how to make planning for the big questions of life easier.  In the first presentation our panel addresses the basics of what you might expect during the years ahead plus two core concerns of this generation: Will my nest egg allow me to maintain my lifestyle through retirement, and what if I or my spouse/partner becomes chronically ill?

Join me in listening to the recording of our session at the Commonwealth Club of California on Longevity Planning: Practical Approaches to Managing Life Transitions (Part One).

May meaning be your motivator!
