Ever wonder how retirement will start for you?

Retirement audio story 1 of 8

09 May 2018

In our 5-minute Retirement Story podcast you can listen to below, nine retirees explain how their retirement started for them. You’ll hear stories from:

  • Angela about why she had to leave the rewarding job she loved
  • Jeff about why he became depressed in retirement (and how he overcame his depression)
  • Marian about how retirement takes her to places most people will never go, and
  • Other retirement stories too


This podcast is the first of an 8-part Retirement Stories audio series we’ll publish on this website for your listening pleasure. Do you have your own retirement story to tell? We’d love to hear it. Email your story to 3rdact@csc.gov.au.
