Lightbulb Best of the Boards (Quality discussions you should read)

Welcome to the Best of the Boards Index. This is where you can find links to discussions that are particularly useful.
- Click here to read a discussion about things you need to consider and preparations you should make as you near retirement.

- To find out where the 4% safe withdrawal "rule" comes from, the effects of inflation and volatility, and what we are taking that 4% from click here.

- When to take Social Security? Waiting 4-10 years could raise your living standard in retirement as much as 10 percent. Read more in this discussion.

- No matter when you FIRE, there is always some set of reasons why you should wait "just one more year." Yet this also seems like a psychological trap - you can always justify waiting, and in the meantime precious years of FIRE go slipping away. Click here to learn how other's knew when the time was right.

- This Social Security spousal benefit sounds too good to be true. Can she really collect a % of the amount I am collecting as a spouse at age 62 and then switch over to her full benefit at later age? Learn more about spousal benefits in this discussion.

- Going to sell your house and want to save the Realtor fees? Read Nord's 10 Steps to FSBO your house and the ensuing discussion by clicking here.
