Who knows. My income from social security, two small pensions and two part time jobs (one seasonal and one year round) are more than enough to meet the bills, including my health insurance. I have no plans to withdraw anything from my other retirement accounts until I am forced to at age 70 1/2. I would likely have waited awhile longer before taking the pensions, but the amount would not have increased if I'd waited so I started them at 65. I just hit SSNRA this month.

I mostly work because I'd be bored if I didn't. I have no expectation that will change any time in the near future. Both jobs are such that I can continue working for them as long as I care to.

I didn't necessarily plan to retire when I did - my position was eliminated - but I'm very glad I did.
