Able to retire and go on holidayMichael and Carol worked in operating theatres, in excess of 60-70 hours a week. Understandably, after some time it began to take its toll, particularly on Michael’s health.
The couple were struggling to keep on top of debts, jobs around the house, and saving for retirement. So, without any clear solution, they faced working for many more years.
Michael said: “We found that it was getting more and more difficult but we never seemed to see an end to it.”
Equity release enabled Michael to cut down his hours straight away. After paying off their credit cards and mortgage they still had money left over to go on holiday.
“We’re able to retire in 10 weeks’ time which we’re both looking forward to,” said Carol. “I wouldn’t change anything at all, everything went absolutely smoothly.”
