I know we have a few older folks on here that are already retired. And, as time cannot be stopped, we're all barreling towards old age and must think about our future, I figured this could be an interesting discussion topic.
For those of you who are retired, at what age did you decide to retire? For those that are still working, how much thought and planning have you put into retirement? Any plans to retire early? Anyone planning on retiring abroad in a cheaper location?
I'm putting a ton of money aside for retirement (like maxing all accounts out). my plan is to retire at 50 regardless of what the money situation is. So some time around 42 years old i'm planning to start only putting the match in my 401k and the 5500 in the IRA. then rathole the difference between that and what i'm putting in now into various investment accounts.
I'm watching my mom die less than a year after retiring. my dad died young. i'm not going out like that. imma do what the fuck i want for the last 10-20 years of my life.
