Retirement is often regarded as an event which defines the end of middle age and the start of old age. This milestone in life tends to have a number of impacts on a person’s psychological and overall life situation and in many cases the end of a person’s economic activity leads to a loss of self-confidence, a sharp reduction in social contact, a certain loss of social status and, not least, to a substantial reduction in income. On the other hand, retirement results in an increase in leisure time and expands opportunities for pursuing hobbies, interests and other activities for which, previously, there was not enough time. Consequently, it is of prime importance whether and how people prepare for approaching old age in advance and what strategies they choose for the use of the extra time which will be available to them. This paper is therefore devoted to a study of the various ways in which one can prepare for old age for example financially and materially, in terms of leisure activities or housing. In addition to issues related to preparing for old age, the authors devote attention to the timing of retirement and plans for this period of life.
