>>>OK- anything wrong with this picture?

At age 62 begin receiving SS (if it's still there)<<<

You may want to recheck the 65% of pay calculation in regards to SSI. Many times the retirement plans for folks retiring before age 62 1/2 or 65 ETC call for a reduction of retirment payments equal to 1/2 SSI or atleast some part of SSI. This is usually due to the fact that the company paid in 1/2 of the SSI for you. This is sometimes referred to Social Security offset ( if that is helpful).

Your plan does not mention health, or life insurance. I see that as a big retirement issue for early retirement especially if there are "preexisting conditions".

If otherwise, all your other assumptions are good, go for it.
