Arent you jumping the gun? What about those of us who do not know if 2016 is the year or not? I am aiming for 2046, but if someone hands me a winning lottery ticket, I would throw my hat in!

Does it count as retirement if I'm going to retire from one company and go to work for another?

The information is asymmetric:
- One knows if you he is planning to retire in 2016.
- He does not know if he may be forced into retirement by favorable or unfavorable circumstances.

As soon as you win lottery, please report to this thread and I will add you to the roll.

There is no strict definition and the inclusion in the Roll is based on self-reporting. If you feel that your new job is discretionary, temporary, easy, or feels like a hobby then I'll add you to the list. For example, I am writing a book and still consider myself retired.

My wife (55) will be retiring on February 1, 2016, and I (58) will be retiring March 1, 2016. Early retirement made possible by the good folks on this site. Thank you for the great ideas and discussions!

I added you to today's list above. Retiring at the same time as your wife must be most rewarding. Congratulations to both of you!

Hello Victoriaf,

Please enter me for June 24th, 2016. I will turn 62 at that time and we have our financial, psychological and "things to want to do" list ready for that date. We are not calling it retirement, but the beginning of Victor 2.0
My friend calls his retirement "permanent vacation" and is busier than ever.

My plan (decided 2 yrs ago) is to start with partial retirement, pulling the first plug in April 2016.
I work half time for a hospital, and have a half-time private practice. I plan to give up the private practice. I am 58, and my spouse is 56. She doesn't want to retire yet.
I have a financial plan from Vanguard that assures me everything is fine financially. My first plan for my freed-up time is to downsize from our house to something smaller.
I'm hoping, if all goes well, to persuade my spouse to retire, and then we can move, and then perhaps travel.
Best regards, Merlin

Well, it looks like I'll be graduating early. My company recently announced a retirement incentive program motivated by a desire to trim staffing levels by about 500 people. The incentive amount is not too far off of what I would have earned by working until July 1, 2016, so I am going to take advantage of the opportunity. My retirement date will now be December 18, 2015

How are we defining retirement?
1) Invest you must 2) Time is your friend 3) Impulse is your enemy | 4) Basic arithmetic works 5) Stick to simplicity 6) Stay the course

For joining a Retirement Class the definition of retirement is personal to each individual. When people report in the Roll Call threads that they are or are going to be retired, they join the class.

You can add us as well. Our day is leap day -- February 29, 2016. Quitting our jobs to travel for a year and then will see what we want to do. We are still young (35 and 29), but financially independent by our standards.

That is the date I had targeted last summer, but as we all now know I am basically on permahold in regards to retirement. Have some extra fun for me on April 1.

Ceteris paribus my spouse should retire 12/16.
I will consider the same but might work a couple months longer to make sure the checks come in.
We are closing out HELOC, lowering payment and locking in lower interest rate.
We are building up more than 3 months cash.

OK, now I'm surprised that my date has not yet been selected. Seems obvious: 4 July 2016 -- INDEPENDENCE Day!

That, plus it is at the start of a new month, so most benefits run through 31 July. :beer

Ah, so close I can almost taste it! :sharebeer

How about November 13th for our Canadian friends. Hopefully BH achieve financial independence well in advance of their retirement. No need to dance on the head of a pin.

That is the date I had targeted last summer, but as we all now know I am basically on permahold in regards to retirement. Have some extra fun for me on April 1.

Will do, Time Lord. There will be many glasses raised that night. At least one will be for you and all Bogleheads.

That, plus it is at the start of a new month, so most benefits run through 31 July. :beer
Same rationale here. I've been asked - why not Mar. 13, my 38th work anniversary? Why not Mar. 30, my birthday? Why not Mar. 31, end of the month and quarter? The proud Boglehead answer is that April 1, a Friday, makes me eligible for benefits through the end of the month, pro-rated profit sharing and pro-rated ESPP. Anyway, I've always wanted to be an April Fool.

Fools have always been the wisest advisers to kings. Please share your wisdom of successful retirement as it develops.
