Ameriprise Financial, in its first New Retirement Mindscape® study, revealed retirement to be a series of five emotional stages, instead of one event.
Five years later, the New Retirement Mindscape II® study shows a shift in the emotional stages.

- Many experience a period of anxiety and hesitation a few years before retirement.
- Many retirees realize that retirement may not always be an enjoyable liberation from everyday responsibilities.
Learn about the emotional stages so you can prepare and feel more confident about your own retirement.
