LEANDRO-FRANCA, Cristineide; IGLESIAS, Fábio  and  MURTA, Sheila Giardini. Future and retirement: evidence of validity for a measure of temporal perspective. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2018, vol.18, n.2, pp. 390-395. ISSN 1984-6657.

Planning the future with clarity of goals can make it easier to adjust to retirement. This study examined evidence of validity of an instrument adapted for Brazil that investigates the future time perspective related to retirement, in the context of retirement planning. The instrument was answered online by 141 male and female workers, ages 25 to 66 years (M = 44.01, SD = 10.87). Exploratory factor analyses revealed a one-dimensional structure, factor loadings remained stable and with evidence of reliability of the instrument. Scale scores revealed a linear increase according to the age group of the respondents. Applications of the instrument and its contributions for interventions are discussed, considering the demographic pyramid of aging of the population and the Brazilian socioeconomic scenario.

Keywords : retirement; perspective of time; clarity of goals.
