This month, the ABA Journal cover story asks readers if they’re adequately planning for retirement, and the ABA Journal Podcast addresses how even lawyers who are in debt can pull this off.

So this week, we’d like to ask you: Are you aggressively planning for retirement, or do you hope to work as long as possible? Or both?

Three years ago, we asked you if you planned to practice well into old age, and four years ago, we asked you about your retirement game plan. Have your attitudes on these topics changed in the last few years? Or have circumstances in the meantime forced you to rethink things?

Answer in the comments.

Read the answers to last week’s question: How long was it until you stopped feeling like a ‘new’ lawyer?

Featured answer:

Posted by ckw: “A conversation with a colleague/former classmate at one of the many holiday parties finally and fully made me realize I’m no longer a ‘new’ attorney—14 years into this gig. He suggested I look around and see how many attorneys I would ask advice from versus those that would ask advice from us. I didn’t like the proportion!”
