I've just discovered this board and have been reviewing many posts since I am retired and the different scenarios are something that can be used to learn. I have no specific question at this time, just wanted to say hello and I will be lurking and reading. If I have any answer, I look forward to sharing.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL

for DockRat,

More or less forced into an early retirement at age 53 over 6 years ago. I rolled over the company 401k into my IRA which made it a little bigger than my taxable account. These investments together had been earning more than my job paid, so it wasn't TOO much of a struggle to give up the pay checks. A meager retirement kicked in when I turned 55 and I expect to start my social security at age 62. Most of my retirement money is in Vanguard S&P 500 and, of course, has done just fine. I've been much happier since I quite trying to beat the market.

I'll certainly welcome you to retirement! Have you planned what you'll do, where you'll live, and so on?

Chipsboss

Thanks for the reply. Im 58 and plan on doing"IT" at 60.
I've had Janus 20 for 8 years since it was $22 a share. It's over 80 now plus my company 401k. Biggest expense I see is health insurande after Cobra runs out. We've got a little place on Pine Island, FL waiting for us. About 5 minutes to the ICW through the mangroves. Can't wait. Happy holidays
