The South African community, like communities worldwide, is characterized by longevity. This results in a steadily increasing number of people still retiring in accordance with the current retirement policy at the ages 60 to 65 years, despite the higher life expectancy. The rising cost of living and unforeseen events and circumstances result in an increased number of retirees experiencing financial need. This study investigated the effect thereof, especially on self-worth. It became evident that pastors are often not sufficiently informed or equipped to recognize and handle the negative emotions experienced by elderly people who did not live in chronic poverty but became impoverished after retirement. The overall purpose of this study is therefore a better understanding of the causes and extent of financial trauma after retirement and the effect thereof after retirement with the aim of providing a holistic approach to pastoral guidance. The focus of the last section was therefore the reaffirmation of self-worth based on dictums and principles in Scripture.
