Interesting...My April 1, 2022 date is very close to 35 years after my high school graduation (May ?, 1987).

Our plan has been to retire on 30 June 2008, so exactly 1 year from today. However, after running through our numbers today the possibility exists that we may be able to do it 3-6 months earlier than that, which excites me greatly.

I will be able to retire on November 21, 2023....which is also my birthday (I will be 49) and I will have reached the magic rule of 70 at my megacorp which will ensure that I will have my full medical benefits in retirement!
Only 16 more years to go!!!!

I will "have" to retire on my birthday, January 18th, 2013. I'll be 55 yrs old. The kind of work I do requires me to be a member of the Air Force Reserves, and that's why I'll be required to retire at age 55, they don't want any old geezers hanging around in the military. Actually, it's not the age, but the fact that the military has a high year of tenure, which is 33 yrs, and I'll be past that by about 3 yrs when I hit age 55. They have to let me stay until my minimum retirement age of 55, but not a day longer. It would be ok with me if they lowered that age even further, I'd go out tomorrow if I wouldn't lose so much from my pension (2% per yr.). Of course, I could leave my present job & find a regular civil service job that didn't require the reserve committment, therefore allowing me to work till I drop.....yeah, right! Even if I change jobs, I'm still goin' out at 55. Not one day later.

October 31, 2008 or March 31 2010 depending on my net worth next year.
I will be giving up quite a bit to go earlier.

Congratulations to all the recent and imminent REs! You are admired and envied!

My projected date is either December 31, 2012 or June 30, 2013. I will be expected to give at least 6 months notice, but the June date would be easier since I could simply announce that I was not renewing my contract.

If possible I would like to RE into a rising market, so if the bear is coming, bring it on now please!

I also want to give my hearty congrats and warm regards to the newly minted ERs, the about to Rock FIREs and the ones who can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I'm truly excited for you!
