Abstract: Retirement planning is a key component in achieving retirement goals and fulfilling retirement expectations. Although several socio-economic and psychological factors associated with retirement planning have been reported in the literature, little is known about the influence that specific retirement-related issues have on retirement planning. In this paper, we examine the influence of five retirement concerns – the individual’s financial situation, living situation, care provision, health condition, and loneliness – on retirement planning. Our dataset is derived from a 2010 web-based survey in the care and wellbeing sector in the Netherlands.
