Still say "it's great as long as people have the finances to cover the fun they are suppose to have". Does anybody here know of anyone who has to live solely off of Social Security? I know Social Security was never meant for that, but there are many out there that either didn't want to or couldn't stay on a job for years and get a pension. There is being laid-off, company closing or a person's own reasons for leaving a company.

Retirement is suppose to be a happy time, but that "happy time" can only happen if there enough finances to support that.

I love being retired, but then again, I was never a person who really loved to work in the first place.

Congratulations on your retirement. My retirement countdown continues...

Assuming I am able to retire before I die, I look forward the most to catching up on sleep.

For the first time since reaching age 22.5 (~30 years ago) I will actually start to reduce my sleep deprivation.

I filed for retirement and just informed my boss that my last day of work is 2/26/16. I feel as if I could fly.

Since retiring, I almost always get seven to eight hours of sleep. That never happened when I was working. And, I actually drink more afternoon coffee than I did while working. It helps that my new kitty waits until I'm beginning to awake before pouncing.

Job stress is a definite sleep killer.
