Greetings from the You’ve Earned It team!
You’ve Earned It/YEI is the digital media platform
for South African 60-plussers!
Message from the YEI Editor – Hello YEI members!
This is the last of the test drive of weekly newsletters. They have been very successful, and this will be a consideration for 2022.
Did you know that retirement is # 10 on the Holmes and Rahe scale. When planning retirement, the best thing you can do to help yourself is to plan very carefully for retirement, not just financially, but on an emotional level as well. Compounding this huge stress is the fact that several life events take place simultaneously in retirement. We invite you to read the article outlining the top ten concerns for retirees and tips on how to combat some of these concerns. In addition, you are going to want to read the article on money mistakes to avoid in retirement – a must-read for all of us who need to make our hard-earned savings stretch during this last third of our lives.
On a happier note, you might also be looking at accommodation options in retirement. We’ve got you covered here too! And if a mini-break is top of mind, this week we move in our Destination series to KZN where we feature five great KZN pensioner deals. A bit far to go, I hear some of you say – well check on our back Destination articles which took us to captivating local destinations for 60-plussers, plus the Western Cape and Mpumalanga.
We have a fascinating book give-away for you this issue, and we need to tell you to get ready for the BEST competition of the year – the YEI Advent Calendar Competition for 2021. Bigger and better! Our partners have been immensely generous this year! Watch this space!
That’s it for now – catch you in the next issue on 10 November!
Marilyn and the YEI Team
