Thank you for the update. Your numbers look good. I am also 47, afraid to make the jump to ER.

Very conservative with investments. Not ER'd yet, 48 years old. Please do not take anything I write or imply as legal, financial or medical advice directed to you. Contact your own financial advisor, healthcare provider, or attorney for financial, medical and legal advice.

The closer it gets, it seems the more I will need. LOL LOL
Never enough is an easy trap to fall into.
Good luck!

Probably the final $$$ up-date, am being severed after 30 yrs.
(Along with everyone else)
Not that I wont up-date, but the accumulation will slow/stop.
Will get 85% med and a yrs pay -42% tax.
Planned on 55, but here I am at 52.

1st post 6 yrs ago:
$300k 401k, (down from 450k)
$55k Roth IRA,
$90k Lump sum pension (projected to be $300K at 55)

$470k 401k
$121k Roth IRA
$250k Lump sum pension (will leave alone for now as it earns over 4%.
$400k rental / $2000 mo. will pay off the loan with yrs pay from above.
$50k cash / checking

The plan is to live off the rent money & make a few bucks in my hobby.
So, I guess that's semi retired. But do enjoy the hobby. So to me its not really work.
Am sitting in money markets right now. No interest in being invested at this time.
Too much going on at the moment...... Holding off on the 72t, want to see how things go for a while 1st.

That about wraps it up.
Thanks again for all the help / input.
