Transitioning to Retirement
When you first began working for the City, retirement was a distant dream. You were in a phase of life that had to do with work and family, and the daily grind gave you so much to do that retirement was not even on the radar screen. As the years passed, however, the possibility of retirement “some day” became a reality. Since retirement decisions are some of the most important decisions you will ever make, these guidelines should help with a checklist of things to do and places to contact.
