Guys and Gals,

I frankly never thought of retiring but being somewhat prudent have saved that someday that day of recognition would happen.

My story: I will turn 61 in a few weeks and recently after being in the workforce for 45 years I have had this inkling that I am over this s... and want to play more.

I have a great job which I love but it is very demanding. I have been blessed that I may have hit the motherlode and may not have to work again as the next year unfolds if the cards play out.

That being said and I realize it is vague what does one have to do or better yet point me in the right direction as to what I have to do to collect benefits at 62. Where do I go what do I do?

As I said I truly never thought I would retire but as someone once told me you will know when it is time...I hear that clock ticking.
