Out at 51 in 2008 -- sure doesn't seem that long ago but time really seems to pass quickly these days.

I was always a slacker and waited until 56. I guess that puts me in the 17%.

Retired in my 30s to care for a very ill parent...never returned to full-time work.

I would've preferred to stay until eligible for the pension but the "care" my mom was getting from others was killing them faster than the disease.

Has there been an earlier, similar poll for this forum?

If it was more than a few years ago maybe it's time for a new one.

Retired at 53 and never looked back. That was 5 years ago. Now work means working on my golf swing.

Almost retired at 58.....alas, forcibly. Then landed an easy j*b to transition to my ultimate ER at 60 1/2. I was shooting for 60, so that f*'in' blip didn't affect me much in the long run. It was nicer to ER on my own terms.

I retired at 50. I figured the vast majority of this forum was going to be people who retired early, since itís right there in the name. Iím actually confused why thereís so many here who didnít retire until more normal retirement age.

Maybe they wanted to, but after being pointed toward FireCalc they learned that they didn't have quite enough? There could also be a discussion of what you consider early and what they do.
