What does “Phased Retirement” Mean?
If a traditional retirement doesn’t appeal to you, The Navigators provides options for you to maximize your impact, effectiveness and influence in the later stages of your life. The phased retirement journey is a process of repositioning yourself by taking advantage of important age and benefit milestones that make new options available. This can happen in three months or over a 20-year period, but the concept is that you can begin to retire from fundraising as you use the funding resources you have set aside over your career.
