I retired at 49/50 and wanted to retire at 53. I actually wished I could have retired at 53.

I plan on mid 30's. Maybe a little sooner, maybe a little later, but most likely some time in my 30's.

Re: What age did you retire?

Stopped working at 45, but they keep paying me. If I can get the contract/FLSA issues resolved before February 3rd I will be officially retired at 47 - almost 48.

8)

Began the planning at 43,
50 was the earliest possible age to receive any minimal payout.

Just made goal at 50.75

although the 3/4 was well worth it on paper, both in payout and tax savings.
