Are you retired? Yes

How old were you when you retired? 41....currently age 57

When did you want to retire? Growing up without a penny to my name, I assumed I'd work until the day I died. Fortunately, that was not the case.

How old are you when you retire? 52, one year ago

When do you want to retire? started to consider it around three years ago (at 50), when my father passed away, we were already fi at the time, took what I thought would be an interesting job, that became massively uninteresting (and time-consuming) so I called it a day.

Are you retired? No

When will you retire? This year, possibly November. I am just trying to determine how much notice to give.

I have been seriously thinking about retiring for about 2 years now; I am 57.

How old are you when you retire? 52

When do you want to retire? I knew 55 was do-able. That was the baseline plan-of-record for many years. 52 had always been a "best case scenario" in my spreadsheets. Turned out to be the actual scenario.

Not retired but FI. Currently 56. Want to work until it's not fun anymore. Some days that seems like it is years away, other times it seems like it could be much sooner. No current date target.

Retired at 40. Currently..um 40. Planned on retiring ASAP from the 1st time I clocked in at Little Caesar's Pizza about 25 years ago. Got *very* serious about it at the age of 30'ish.

Planned on retiring at 55, stayed on until 57 as the work was not taxing and gave me an opportunity to go and see places around the world in the course of doing what I did.

Are you retired: No.

Plan to retire in 16 months and will be 55 that week.

Originally planned for 59-60 but some good fortune and amped up saving/investing will shave off 4-5 years.

My plan is to consult maybe 200-300 hours per year for a few years if it's offered.

My wife has another 6-8 years that she wants to work. She is only 48 now.

Retired? Yes.

At age 60.

I started thinking about retirement at age 45. Then, I figured I'd have to work until age 67, mainly because I had no idea of what was needed. As I got better educated and my numbers firmed up, the age dropped to 65, then 62, finally ending up at 60. If the BS bucket got too full, retirement could've happened at 59-1/2.
