About Us

Post-retirement blues start even before a person retires. The idea of being at home, with no income, no social life, no commute, is quite scary. Often, retirees fail to connect with the corporate or academics or any form of volunteering opportunity. Sadly, at times their family or their children desert them. Illness, boredom, loneliness, gradually consume them till they breathe their last.

My Retired Life Foundation is a registered Public Charitable Trust born out of the need to serve senior citizens with a platform that provides professional opportunities and social engagements for people who have retired and can contribute to keeping themselves engaged.

Besides professional/social opportunities, the venture also is a one-stop place where senior citizens can look for all types of services/assistance such as Healthcare Support and Spiritual Wellbeing, Legal Advisory, Financial Advisory, apart from Networking with each other through WhatsApp group, and the various events we organize every month both physically as well as on virtual mode.

The Mission of MRLF is to help to provide an enabling environment for senior citizens to live life with dignity and happiness.

The registered office of the Trust is Navi Mumbai. MRLF has members primarily from Mumbai and Navi Mumbai though there are plans to collaborate and scale up.
