Interesting, Martha. It seems 72t is a lot more friendly than I had remembered. Thanks for the correction. See, I said I was no expert.

Looks like you are already ahead of the game. When I was thinking about retiring early, my questions were, "What the heck is a 72t? People are allowed to do that?"

I agree about first and foremost, listen to yourself, then use a fee-only planner or the eccentrics as a sounding board.

72t is the first thing I learned about in contemplating early retirement. I still think of it it as Brewer does, somewhat "unfriendly" in a down market environment.
