You might want to consider adding a few days to that. Another poster mentioned that having just one or two working days in your last month qualifies you for your company medical coverage for that month. I verified this is true in my case by reading the posted HR documentation. Due to this, when I pull the cord it will likely be the first or second of November.
In addition, this would still be in the sign-up window of whatever medical coverage one would be going to.

Sign me up! Friday March 24, 2017.

March 26 is my birthday. I will turn 58 then, so I thought it would be much cooler to retire at 57 yo and 363 days than at 58.

Anyway... Can't wait...

I just pledged myself to 2018, so I guess I am now officially a 2017 flunkie.

This has been planned for over ten years so pretty rock solid. I will be 52 and my DW will retire in 2020. So besides watching my newest grandson, I will probably either volunteer or pick up some P/T work to keep busy. Due to my pension it made no sense to stay in any longer. Once my DW retires we will only work P/T if we love it, or we will volunteer somewhere, maybe even stretches outside the US.
Keep checking all of the spreadsheets, just cause I am that type of person, but I have got to remember to keep my head in the game until next March.
So this morning, I submitted my letter outlining my retirement plans and dates. Where I work, this is important so I can help with the transition and because I'm quite safe from any retaliation. But the question is, my last day of work will be December 22nd, 2016, and using vacation time until February 28, 2017 and begin FIRE March 1st, 2017. This is still Class of 2017 isn't it??

Adding that I will be 64 and 1/12 years old when I retire. I am sorry for the additional message but I could not figure out how to edit my original message and I noted that most people have included their age at retirement in the class roster.

Welcome to the Class of 2017! Since it's an early retirement forum, people like to post their ages and it's fun to see how early they made FIRE. I'll be 62 so not especially early but at least I made it before 65 and will be FI (financially independent).

You can edit a message for about 2 hours. Then the edit button at the bottom of your post disappears.

Hey, room for one more? We made our decision back in March when I told my wife we are basically FI. I'm 53, DW turns 50 next month. My plan: I get my annual retirement contribution from Megacorp in mid-Jan 2017. February marks my 25th anniversary with said company. I want to reach this milestone; it's important to me. My last day will be around 2/10/17. Plans are to take glassblowing and pottery classes, get more involved with helping those in poverty locally and globally, work towards becoming bilingual in Spanish, travel, and RELAX. Can't wait! Only 100 or so days at w@rk!
