After many years of service either in the private or public sector, there is need for retirement. Unfortunately in Nigeria like elsewhere, retirement in recent years has become a dreaded issue. This is perhaps due largely to the stress, anxiety and challenges that often characterize the phenomenon. In this paper, attempt is made to highlight the teething challenges which often confront retired personnel. This paper also provides some strategies to enable retirees cope with these challenges. Based on this discourse, conclusion is drawn and some recommendations made on the issue.
