Did you know according to Stats Canada, only 10% of Canadians retire above the low income line?
When my father's company offered early retirement packages, he was disqualified because he was born 55 days too late. He survived a heart attack and worked another 5 years before receiving his pension, which he enjoyed for 3 years before he passed. Why didn't he retire sooner? Simple...because he was one of the 90% who couldn't afford to.
As a financial professional, I know now that my father had all the tools he needed to retire much earlier. If only someone like me had sit down with him, perhaps he could have enjoyed more retirement years with his family, and spent more time doing what he loved.
