Do You Have a Bucket List for Retirement?


Mary G. Landon and John M. Ritz, professors at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA, are leading an exciting online study on the “contentment factor” in retirement.  They are interested in the opinions you hold on work and retirement.

So far, half of the people participating share that they have a “bucket list.”  For many people, travel ranks high on the list.  Other bucket list items include learning a language, volunteering, enjoying grandchildren and staying healthy.

The survey only takes a few minutes.  Your responses will be anonymous. Your individual responses will not be able to be traced back to you.

Your participation in this study will help you and others better understand what contributes to contentment in retirement.  

We look forward to sharing more results of this study with you in the future.
