Pre-retirement begins in your 50s or early 60s when managing competing priorities like paying for college for your children while simultaneously increasing your retirement savings is the top priority. At this point, you are starting to think in more detail about funding your retirement. As you move through this phase and get closer and closer to retirement, you begin to make more concrete plans to determine your income and manage healthcare and other post-work costs. 

But, perhaps most importantly, you’ll decide what day you are actually going to retire.
