What are the Top Goals of Those 55+?

Those 55 years of age and older have dreams and ambitions, but what are their top goals? A study from Legal & General lifetime mortgages found their top five goals are related to travel and self-improvement.

According to Legal & General’s research, which included interviews of 2,0000 homeowners aged 55 and over, the top 10 goals are: 10) Eat in a Michelin-starred restaurant ; 9) Pay off their mortgage; 8) Go to more gigs and concerts; 7) Downsize their home; 6) Move abroad; 5) Drive along Route 66; 4) Retire; 3) Learn a foreign language; 2) Visit Australia; and 1) Travel more.

According to the survey’s findings, 7 in 10 respondents still have clear life goals they’d like to achieve. 8 in 10 said they feel younger their actual age and nearly one fifth said this is the time period in which they will achieve most of their life goals.
