Career Management International, Inc. helps retirees build a plan that includes personal, marital, career, eldercare, financial and legal considerations. CMI’s Retirement Program addresses the emotional and financial concerns associated with both early and full-term employee retirement.
Retirement planning is more than money.
Individuals who are “retirement age” are regularly separated from organizations. While the individual’s age may seem to make retirement appropriate, that person’s financial, emotional or family situation can be just the opposite. This is perhaps the most difficult transition scenario because individuals who have been in the workforce for twenty to thirty years often feel that they are too old to begin again and that they can’t successfully position themselves in today’s marketplace.
CMI can provide the tools and support for a successful career/life transition at any age.
For those who are prepared to fully retire, CMI provides life balance services that can be employed during the retirement process and beyond. When working with clients who are planning semi-retirement, the goal is to find a new career path that is commensurate with their abilities. CMI will assist them to confidentially pursue positions, armed with specific knowledge of what they bring to the marketplace. For client who decide that retirement is not for them will be assisted through the entire career transition process and will be supported until they secure new employment.
Americans now live on average for more than 77 years, and that number is on the rise. For many, a lack of purpose can impede happiness and contribute to despondence.
In 2020, there were more than 55 million Americans over the age of 65, including more than 15 million over the age of 75. This is more than 16% of the population of the United States. Because of financial concerns, full retirement will not be possible for many.
…leads to a call for tomorrow’s plan.
These statistics suggest that a number of us will be living longer and will have much more time to spend after we stop working, so we face the challenge of deciding what we want to do with this gift of extra time.
CMI’s Retirement Program equips individuals with an understanding of their finances: what they already have, what they can reasonably expect to receive from social security, investments, pensions, and so on, and the knowledge of what they will need to enter a retirement that will be practical, functional and rewarding. Financial gaps will be thoroughly addressed and potential solutions can be provided.
Clients will be offered assistance with developing a life plan including a strengths assessments and bio/resume preparation for volunteer work, part-time, or full-time employment. A marketing plan specifically designed to highlight their experience and measurable professional accomplishments will be developed. CMI will provide assistance with networking and interviewing, referrals to appropriate hiring resources, information and discussion of eldercare options and sessions dealing with individual and family emotional issues.
