This study is considered important to Psychology area because it fosters the development of a critical view on the psychologist's role in preparing workers for their retirement. Through the analysis of the fieldwork, we have found out that workers who are close to retirement face feelings like fear and insecurity and often desire to continue working. In addition, this study has demonstrated that preretired workers do not face the approaching of old age. We have also noticed that the pre-retirement phase is an opportune time for reflection and for planning new projects for the future.
