How to transition from work to retirement

Retirement audio story 3 of 8

09 May 2018

In our 7-minute Retirement Story podcast you can listen to below, nine retirees tell us how they coped transitioning from work to retirement. You’ll hear stories from:

  • Kate about how wearing red hats and purple clothes helped her to overcome the emotional challenges of retiring
  • Bob about his number one retirement problem (and how he overcame it...)
  • Kate on the ingredient all satisfying retired lives include, and
  • Other retirement stories too


This podcast is the third story 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 share? We’d love to hear it. Please email your story to
