Ted Kaufman & Bruce Hiland

Planning for retirement isn’t just about money.

Retirement has changed dramatically since our parents’ generation. People are living far longer, with far better health than ever before—both mentally and physically.

Instead of slowing down, people are leaving their jobs feeling ready to take on the world. They’re financially independent, active, and capable.

And then, suddenly, they have nothing to do.

Business friends drift away, the sense of purpose that comes with solving problems day in and day out fades into memory, and you start looking ahead to the next thirty or forty years wondering what on earth you’re going to do with all that time.

Drawing on the experience of today’s modern, vibrant retirees, Retiring? offers a concise, practical, and conversational guide to the best chapter of your life.

Ted Kaufman is the former U.S. Senator from Delaware succeeding Senator Joseph Biden. Ted was Biden’s Chief of Staff for nineteen years and led his presidential transition planning in 2020.
