Editor's note: This article is the first of a two-part series.

If your retirement day is on the horizon, are you ready for the major life changes, financial and otherwise, that the end of your working life will bring?

At retirement, your paycheque or self-employed earnings end and your income must originate from other sources. You decide what you will do each day. How will you spend your time? What income will you require and where will it come from? Where will you live? Sussing out the answers to these questions and developing a post-retirement financial plan before you retire is a prerequisite for a satisfying post-working life.
