In 11 years, the dude has a pension and social security that will fund him going forward.

Even if the pension is inflation adjusted (many aren't), it's unlikely that the combination of pension and social security income will keep up with inflation going forward, because inflation adjustments often don't keep up with actual personal inflation. If the pension is not inflation-adjusted, the combination of the 2 won't keep up with inflation. If he's not planning on using some of his savings once he starts getting the pension and SS, he's probably going to have a declining lifestyle.

To me, it looks like someone who has convinced themselves that they are ready to retire early, when they really aren't.
