Count me in! Aug. 1, 2016 for me, at 55 years old. Looking forward to a very active "retirement."

I'm fortunate to have a defined benefit pension, plus savings, and a frugal spouse.

No date as of yet. Playing it by ear but don't expect to last past mid-year. I'm excited for all of you...and me!

Good luck to the graduating class of 2015

Good luck to shipmates cinghiale and DFrank graduating tomorrow. Our shipmate Victoria said "this retirement thing is really exciting." It is exciting. A few days ago I had an exciting moment during a lunch with some old shipmates, one of them used to be my military boss and is now managing a large military contract, he made me and offer for a good position on the spot, my response "thanks for the offer, I have retired, and I am not looking for a job, I just came here to have a nice lunch with you." Praise the Lord, I waited many years to be able to say that--it felt so liberating.

Wishing all my BH shipmates (those retired, soon-to-be-retired, and those still in the workforce) a Feliz Navidad.

Of those that listed their age, Bogleheads seem pretty keen on early retirement. I think there may be a lesson there somewhere.

What an amazing day! What a surreal and impressive cascade of feelings!

I closed up my office, cleaned out my computer, handed in my keys, and said my final goodbyes yesterday. Today I have woken up to Day 1 of life beyond work. Lots of busy-- though fulfilling and enjoyable-- days ahead as the lead-up to retirement transitions immediately into the holiday season.

Thanks Victoria for initiating this thread and thanks cfs for the well wishes. :beer Cheers to all. :D A big, big grin is the order of the day.

Thanks cfs for the well wishes.

I had my last day at work today. I had cleaned out my office slowly over the past several weeks, so today I had time to walk around and say my good byes and well wishes to many people I've worked with over the years. I had been at my employer for 17 years, but there are a few people who I began working with at Hughes Aircraft 38 years ago. Definitely some bittersweet moments as we look back and think about the good times and many shared accomplishments over the years.

After we get through the holidays my focus will turn to preparing to sell our house in SoCal and getting ready to move to our retirement home in north Idaho. We hope to be up there by May or June.

Congrats and best wishes to my fellow 2015 class mates! Let the next adventures begin!

Congrats to cfs and cinghiale from a fellow 2015 "grad" (April 30), and thank you again to Victoria for maintaining these lists. I get a kick out of seeing not only my own name but the impressive numbers of other bogleheads who are launching on new adventures.

Last week at work for the following shipmates !!!

- Nearing_Destination
- Snapper
- jeffG
- DaleMaley
- sandramjet
- UncleMax

The last week is great! I do remember my last week, packed to the max with emotions. It was my last chance to leave the work position [which was always inspection ready] spotless, to collect personal emails, to collect phone numbers, and to give personal thanks to each co-worker.

Congratulations and enjoy your retirement!

My recommendation to everyone leaving the workforce and entering the retirementforce is to stay physically, mentally, and spiritually busy.

Have a productive 2016.

Better late than never. I retired from teaching in June 2015. 30.5 years, after a previous 10 years of other jobs.. First six months have been heaven. Will sub a bit now as my version of 'community service'. Defined benefit plus nice retirement savings thanks to Bogleheads during the 2008 crises.

I left the workplace on January 6, 2015. It was time to go and a lifetime of saving, investing and a couple pensions made it possible at 62. I have the pleasure of knowing I did a lot of good for a lot of people. I began working weekends and summers at age 10. My Dad has me beat however. He worked from 8 to 93.

I know I'm very late in signing up for the class of 2015 but I've been absent from posting for a few years. Just found my old password and decided to become a little more active again.

Retired on 10/23/2015 @ age 47.... Wish me luck!

WOW. Feel left out. Never came across this posting in 2015 when I retired!

Please allow me to join in 2017. And yes, I am still retired and enjoying every minute of it.

An update to my retirement in 2015. Last week, The Price is Right finally aired the show that was taped in November '16. I was fortunate enough to be picked to be on contestant's row and move on to win a new car. I have the same middle name as Drew Carey and I'm sure that helped me get picked to be a contestant. Drew said I was the first guy he has met that has the same middle name as his. The show was during "Dream Car" week, but the car I won was not the dream car. I also spun a 90 on the big wheel, but was the loser on the showcase showdown with an overbid. My wife and I were also on "Let's Make A Deal" almost forty-four years ago so I've done pretty well with getting on game shows. Never did see the LMAD show as it was preempted by the Watergate hearings.

Retirement has been very good to us. I've lost some pounds with my cycling and have over 8,000 miles on the bikes this year. I'm planning on building up a new Seven C-Ti bike this summer and may get back to the U.S. Masters Nationals next year when I attain a new age milestone. I'm strong enough on the bike that I'm hanging in with riders many decades younger than me, but I was a Cat. A rider in my early twenties, and was very competitive into my forties keeping my Cat 3 license until I was 42. I'll be seventy next year and I will be commencing S.S. and RMD's then.

Retirement has been very enjoyable with cycling, great fishing trips and travels with friends and family and just doing things we never had time for before. We have a wonderful standard Poodle who likes to sleep in later than we do. Life has been good and we hope that it continues to be so for the foreseeable future.

Congratulations Almost there, we added you to the list! Please provide the date and your graduation age, if you choose.

And since you are no longer "Almost there," but are now "there," are you now known as "Now there"? Or do you have other goals for which you are still "Almost there"? 8-)

Good questions Miriam2.

Almost there: I came up with as a long term goal of succeeding in life. I have, with the help of many Bogleheads, achieved most of them. Now I'm living in a wonderful place and am happy I can afford it. May I continue learning and just being happy, healthy and content.

We have a ***Hollywood Star*** on the forum!! Plus - with your analytical skills in The Price is Right and Let's Make a Deal, you must have created an incredibly awesome financial portfolio - care to share your secrets? 8-)
