2old4bs:<<<I do not know your age, and you seem to have me confused with some 34-year old youngster, so I am not sure whether that statement is accurate.>>>"In my last post I apologized for confusing you with another poster, are you looking for something further, like an invitation to my daughter's wedding? ;-)"Sorry, I posted before reading the entire thread (including your subsequent post).<<<Truly safe would be to never retire. Is that really the position you want to argue?>>>"The position I was arguing to start with was that $2M might not be enough to retire on at the age of 45. Then OP responded that he could retire on $2M at 34, which I disagreed with, and gave some reasons why. My position was NOT that to be truly safe one should never retire."It depends greatly upon your expenses; focus on only one side of the income/expense equation can never fully answer the question."Here's an article that supports my position:http://moneycentral.msn.com/content/Retirementandwills/InvestYourSavings/P34685.aspKatz is overstating the case a bit. Retiring at 50 with $2 million set aside isn't very risky; it just might not be as smart, or as liberating, as it seems."Regards, JAFO
