I ran the numbers and I would take such a hit if I retired today. My son is in his senior year of college and then wants Grad school (which he will pay for) . . . so I'm backing down from 62 to 60 with fingers crossed.


That would be four more years, God help me. I really just want to sleep in a bit, workout with my friends, volunteer at my favorite places, walk the dogs, visit with friends and family. Travel if I can.
Your last paragraph sounds like what I do...never bored.
One thing you are going to ask yourself after about 3 months into retirement;
'How did I ever get daily errands, things done, when I had that pesky day job?'

No earlier than 70-1/2 unless I am involuntarily retired either due to the economy or unexpected inability to handle day to day work.

I'm 59. I'm thinking 65 but it really depends on how good or awful earning a living is over the next 5 or 6 years.

Spring 2018 at age 61 1/2 and I can't wait. I can continue with health insurance from my job at the employee rate until I turn 65. I have been eligible to retire since age 60, but wanted to get my pension a little higher. Not sure about social security at 62. Leaning toward taking it. I am single. I like the idea of living on my cash flow and conserving my assets.

80 - 85. I expect to live to 95 - 100 and much more than 20 years retirement is likely to be boring.

I'm thinking 62. Not positive, though. Might go longer. I do enjoy my work.

I planned to work until 65, but ended up retiring at 62. An opportunity arose that I couldn't resist.
