Pilbara News - - Retirees’ Voice -

“Stay­ing healthy. Liv­ing a full and con­tented life, shar­ing ex­pe­ri­ences with my part­ner. Mak­ing new friends and find­ing new in­ter­ests that I have not had the time to fol­low in the past. Some of those will take money, there­fore hav­ing enough set aside to do things with­out hav­ing to worry about how to pay for it would be nice.” (Male, Pre-re­tiree) “Stay­ing phys­i­cally and men­tally healthy, in our own home for as long as pos­si­ble and en­joy­ing a lifestyle full of things we want to do with­out hav­ing to worry too much about be­ing able to af­ford nor­mal liv­ing ex­penses and some fun ac­tiv­i­ties that we have worked hard for.” (Fe­male, Pre-re­tiree) “Be­ing happy! This means be­ing healthy and hav­ing ac­cess to a sound health sys­tem (and) liv­ing in a peace­ful and safe com­mu­nity with a strong demo­cratic gov­ern­ment. Se­condly and more per­son­ally, it means be­ing fi­nan­cially in­de­pen­dent.” (Male, Pre-re­tiree)
