I didn't think anyone on the Boglehead forum ever retired
Here is a post from the boglehead forum that I read this AM:
"$1.5 at fifty and retired. Are you serious?
We are 64 and 70. I have a pension and VA compensation from Vietnam, both have health care coverage and SS and we wonder if OUR portfolio of $1.4 will last the rest of our lives. As some of the others said, you might want to work a little longer or work p/t. You have done a tremendous job up to now, but you might be a little impatient."
It is interesting to see the different perspectives between this board and the boglehead board. A lot of the Bogleheads don't seem to be as worried about running out of time as they are running out of money.
