Retirement and later life

You made it – congratulations on your retirement! Now you have more time for yourself and your hobbies. However, you may also be concerned about ageing and what it entails.

Staying fit in everyday life

Exercise remains important even as you age – an active lifestyle helps you to remain healthy or improve your health. If you did sports earlier in life then you know this is true. However, you will only stay fit if you continue to get enough exercise during retirement.

Health checks help to detect potential diseases before the occurrence of any symptoms or discomfort. It is always a personal decision whether or not to have the recommended health checks. Your general practitioner can advise you. You can also find information about this topic here, on our website. Please note that the recommendation to have a health check does not always mean that the benefit will be covered by basic insurance.
