Last week I read an interesting blog post about seeing a doctor before retiring. I’m still a long way from retirement, but it’s good to be aware of the tasks related to that plan. The post mentioned the obvious such as visiting a financial planner or a lawyer, but the doctor was a surprise to me. Doing a full workup makes sense in planning for the future, especially if your company has a robust health insurance plan to cover it. While scary to find out that you have a potentially terminal illness, it’s wise to be prepared financially when planning for it and how to best allocate your 401(k) resources, etc.
Perhaps it’s time to revise the adage to eat an apple a day keeps the doctor happy!
