Btw, my age at retirement will be either 52 (if I retire as soon as my final stock batch vests) or 53 1/2 (if I wait for retiree health insurance eligibility)! Not quite as young as I was hoping for when I first found this board back in 1998, and certainly not as young as intercst (who retired at 38, if I recall correctly?), but it works for me!

Just a side note, the FI part of FIRE is not the only part to watch. Homer took early retirement with a golden handshake. After a while at home, he started saying things like, "I'm so old. Honey have you picked out my retirement home yet? I'm going to need one."

At that point, I looked at him and said, "I love you with all my heart and soul, but if you don't go back to work, Im going to divorce you and I will clean you out in the process."


P.S. You know it's bad when even the kids are complaining he's too whiney.
