The Retirement Success Profile ©
The Retirement Success Profile © (RSP) is a

The RSP measures 15 "retirement success factors."
These factors have been proven to reveal how likely

2. Attitude Toward Retirement
3. Personal Directedness
4. Health Perception
5. Financial Security
6. Current Life Satisfaction
7. Projected Life Satisfaction

13. Family/Relationship Issues
14. Perception of Age
