In this module, you'll learn about factors to consider when deciding whether (or not) to continue working in later life. You can also take an online quiz to decide if you're ready to retire. This module also explores the concept of "phased retirement," as it applies to farm families, and occupations, other than farming, that can make good use of a farmer's work experience and skill set.

  1. Are You Ready to Retire?
  2. What is Your Retirement Readiness Rating (R3)?
  3. Phased Retirement: An Option For Farmers?
