According to my Retirement countdown calculator, I have about 100 actual work days left.
Although November is 8 months away, subtracting weekends, holidays and vacation time, I'll take the 100 days-- Doesn't seem so bad! For some silly reason, I never took all of my vacation days and let them accumulate. Now I am taking 1 week each month until I retire, making the time go by faster.

My calculator has 12 work days including today. Time has stopped. I hope it goes faster for you.

Just two weeks left for me now and enjoying the first of these on vacation in Florida! I can feel almost 27 years of life in corporate America lifting off my shoulders. I deleted my work email connection from my iPhone and left an out of the office message that said "if you REALLY need to get a hold of me this week, I'm sure you'll find a way."

Got my bonus today; no way I was going to give notice prior to the bonus notice. I have targeted giving my notice on 4/5/16 (taking Monday 4/4 off) which will be a 33 workdays / 52 calendar day notice.

Gave my notice yesterday! The GM's first response was to try to talk me out of it, then he came to accept it, and finally he offered sincere congratulations as he walked out the door. I still have to notify my direct supervisor. I'm expecting that one to be more of a struggle since he relies on me more directly.

Congratulations!
I left my Mega Corp in Feb with a pending bonus for 2015 to be issued in April. I have slight hope they will follow through and issue it, since they addressed this very question in a webex discussion for another retiree. But to trust they don't lie, I know better despite the companies Integrity award. You were very wise to wait for your bonus.

What to do on April 1?...how about whatever you feel like or absolutely nothing. You time will be 100% yours to enjoy however you want.

That, to me, sounds better than any Christmas I ever had as a child! Particularly, since we have empty-nest and my wife wants to keep working.
A little more than 2 months to the finish line

Committed to class of 2016. Just accepted my last stock grant, where 50% vests in May. Adjusted my 401k to max out end of May - my FIRE date. Scheduled a bunch of ETB between now and then. Adjusted DW's 401k and HSA to max by end of June - her FIRE date - a bit later than mine due to my youngest needing our mega-corp family health insurance until then. Definitely excited to be out by age 55.

4/1 was to be my last work day at Megacorp. Rumors started to circulate that Mega may offer a "Retirement Incentive" package. Significant cash incentive to accept a voluntary layoff. Announcement should be in April. May have to delay retirement until 5/31.

I just decided to remove myself from the Class of 2017 and join the Class of 2016! I think I will give my notice in early May, with hopes of being gone by Memorial Day. Have been thinking about it for a while, finally decided to JUST DO IT.
