As people age, there are certain things that they need to do in order to prepare for the future. Having a checklist for turning 65 can help make sure that everything is taken care of in a timely manner. Some of the things on the checklist might include: getting your finances in order, making sure you’re up-to-date on your health screenings and arranging for any necessary long-term care. Preparing for retirement at any age is important, but doing so at 65 can help ensure a smooth transition into life after work.
