Technically, I have to take myself out of 2015, BUT my last day on the job is January 4 which won't really be w*rking. I made this decision due to COBRA insurance considerations. I decided it was totally worth it. My husband's last day is this December 23, so we will essentially be retiring together. Papers are in, written letter of resignation submitted, and the countdown is on. It's awesome to read everyone's posts who have gone this year! Can't wait!!

Thanks, BB. It doesn't seem quite real yet. BTW, I love your signature line.

I guess I'm also now a member of the class of 2015. I retired 11/13/2015. Not quite what I originally had in mind, but I have enough, probably more than enough, financially.

My initial reaction is that I love the freedom!

Finally have my release date confirmed so I'll be moving into the class of 2016.

My company is doing a lot of layoffs right now so I was able to get my manager to make me one of the 30,000 people being laid off. The date I'll be notified that I'm being released is January 11. I'll then have until March 11 to try to find another job in the company (there is no hiring in my field so that won't be happening). So I'll technically be retired on March 11, 2016 but I won't be required to do any work after January 11.

I missed my retirement date prediction by 11 days. I sent myself an email on January 1, 2013 to be delivered on January 1, 2016 congratulating myself of FIRE.

My company also does a mandatory shutdown for the holidays and that combined with my vacation means I'll be working another 16 days. I though I'd be ecstatic but I'm honestly a little nervous about it. I've worked since I was 14 and while I have A LOT to do one work is done I'm still antsy about it.

Class of 2015....I guess

Hi everyone,
As I mentioned in the Introduction section, I'm a long time lurker, but joined a few days ago. With 12/31/15 being my last day of work, I suppose I'm a "Class of 2015" member; however, will have some pay still coming in 2016...vacation, 401k contribution, bonus. I have 14 days of work remaining (IF I were counting), one more business trip next week, and then two slow weeks with the holidays. I'm almost there.

I've been FI for several years, but at 66, can't say I'm RE'ing. Financially, I believe we'll be OK. Guaranteed income from various sources should cover basic, and even discretionary expenses, but time will tell. Many tasks yet to accomplish in getting all my ducks in a row with workplace exit items, but nothing that takes a lot of time, just need to get to it.

No major plans after retirement other than a lengthy list of "around the house" jobs that have been put off for a while. I think this should keep me busy for the winter and spring months, at least. While I hope my wife and I do a little more travel, I don't think we will become global travelers, but maybe we'll make several short vacations to get in the mood. I do know that I can't vegetate in the house. Even now I get totally bored if I have a weekend with nothing to do, so will have to find outside the house activities to keep me busy. I think this is my biggest concern of lapsing into a couch potato.

Well, that's about it for my situation. Congratulations to all other 2015 FI's or RE's, or FIRE's. Good Luck to all in the rest of our lives.

Ron

I was telling a friend that I had a lot of free time on my hands. He suggested I join some groups. I thought I would join this one.

Congrats, Ron. I also was worried about too much time and boredom, as you mentioned. I had a "to do" list, when I fire'd 6 months ago. Other (fun) things got in the way, list is gone, but not done :-). You'll be fine.

C'mon folks! We appear to be at 97 ERees with just a couple of weeks to go. Let's get to an even 100 at least!

Howdy Gang,
Just found this today.
I was " retired" on Oct 23 2015 thanks to the hideous price of oil. Had no choice but was kinda ready. I had planned to work another 12-18 months but the CEO had other ideas.
It is not very pleasant to be forced into this even if you were somewhat prepared and saw it coming. I am 62 ( barely) and luckily my wife can continue working as long as she likes. Makes the health insurance disaster not an issue.
We have aton of plans on the ready but they mostly are on hold until she pulls up stakes in 18 months. Until then I'm finding that the days are kinda long and I'm running outa things to do. I worked or schooled virtually every day since I was 13..most of my career in the damn oilfield manufacturing industry was made up of 6-7 day weeks , few holidays and few vacations. We have a TON of catching up to do and now have a new 18 month clock to start.
I'm looking forward to reading and posting on this. Lots of great commentary.
I hope to find a discussion about downsizing as this is our BIGGEST problem looming..we have 3 generations of quality stuff and momentos stuffed into a 4000 sq ft house that has to fit in our 1500 sq ft retirement country house....... First world problem but....

Like these?

Downsizing
Anyone Planning to Move/Downsize Soon?
"Downsizing" - did you adjust to it?
Downsizing - regrets?
