Re: "Benchmark" Poll Question


I'm not sure I can really answer the question. I retired at 49 but both my income and investments as well as my retirement benefits were significantly higher. So I might say my answer is that I would not retire in that situation.

On the other hand, if my income had not been higher during my working days so that it had not been as easy to accumulate investments as it was, I am certain that we would have reduced our lifestyle and retirement expectations significantly. So maybe the answer is that I would retire at 50 under those circumstances.
