My question, Fellow Fools, especially those of you who have been enjoying retirement for some time, is what do you
consider a reasonable yearly income to live comfortably on ? I realize that lifestyles differ with each person, I'm just
wondering what everyone considers to be a minimum retirement income.


Inflation can be a real problem. What did you pay for milk 10 years ago, 20 years ago etc.? Be sure you have inflation covered. Property taxes will increase.

Why are your friends telling you to retire early. You hate the job or it is just fund to talk about?

If your job is ok I would hold on since you are not sure. You can always retire next year but you probably can not get your job back.
