Today, a college-educated person with a comfortable income is likely to live into their 80s. A life this long can be divided into four periods, averaging roughly 8,000 days each.  The last of the 8,000 Day periods is better known as “Retirement” and that phase looks much different than it did just a generation or two ago.  Retirement planning doesn’t exactly take into account the realities of an 8,000-day retirement; a script hasn’t been written for that final, but still lengthy, phase.

Learn MIT AgeLab’s insights into the four phases of retirement which most people will experience, presented by John Diehl. By understanding the longevity framework, plan participants are better able to anticipate and prepare for both the opportunities and challenges of living in an age of extended longevity.
