Hello from Karen

Hi, I am glad I found this forum. I am 58 years old and looking to retire next year at 59. I don't need any immediate financial advice, bit am looking to learn and enjoy this forum!

The FAQ is great - thanks! We do have our expenses nailed down and are living on our retirement income this year.

Very smart! Observing how the rubber meets the road that way is a great method for ensuring confidence in your numbers.

Hello & Welcome! I am of a similar age and have been retired for about a year and a half now. Turns out, I’m much better at being retired than I was at work. I hope you have a similar discovery...
