Don't I retire on my own terms when I decide to leave as soon as my financial net worth meets a certain number?
Why should it then be different when I decide to leave as soon as I am entitled to receive health insurance or a pension?

@ chris2008: Ha! The senior VP who wanted me gone told me that retiring early was good in that I could "leave on my own terms" - 55 y/o with pension, 401k, subsidized medical, and many opportunities for contractor or consultant work.

Shame on the SVP. He said "on your own terms" and thought "if not we will make you go"...
