Support from government and family are being reduced for the old aged people and they are left alone when they get too old. This study concentrates on real life cases of a retired person and other person who is yet to retire. A detailed analysis in this study brings out the need and precautions to be considered to have a secure retirement life for the upcoming retirees. The habit of saving is been given more importance and the time to initiate such habit has been established in this study. The study reveals out how one should be aware of upcoming events and plan accordingly to lead a peaceful retirement life.
