Not yet retired; 22 months to lift off at age 58.

Original plan was 55 (a 25 year old's dream). However, mega corp changed the pension plan from DB to DC, kids came onto the scene (dang they are expensive), failing the LBYM undergraduate course and wife's disability combined to change the trajectory.

Yes, since Jan 4 2017. It has been amazing, fulfilled a a 30+ year old dream, retired 22 days before my 55th birthday. Some serious commitment to LBYM, but a lot of luck also...

Yes, retired for approx 2 months now, age 53. Never really had a specific age, it was more of a financial value vs expenses. Worked a little bit longer in order to have more cushion and security.

About to be 59 and still in OMY mode. With no HC options available other than ACA, I will continue in OMY mode until HC sorts itself out.

It's been great. really enjoy the free time. I was a little concerned about the spending at first, and the reality that there's no more paychecks coming in.

But I'm getting a handle on things as I go along.

I feel like I could never go back to work now.

Yes. About 15 months ago. It was the best thing I ever did and I went when I was on the top and still loved my job. That is how I wanted to go not when I hated my job or the place I worked.

I left and haven't been back there and never have looked back.
