April 30, 2019 for me. Age 61 (62 in July)

As a CPA, I will continue to work a bit in preparing taxes until Medicare is an option, and maybe bit beyond that for "fun money". I don't do a large number of returns and they're easy money compared to the variety of things I do now. Plus not a lot of golfing where I live during Feb - March.

The most perfect time to retire! We'll log you in for July 4th, a great day to celebrate independence :beer
Enjoy your countdown!

Forgive the off-topic question... DW is planning to punch out early 2020. Would it be permissible to announce for her here on Bogleheads when the 2020 list shows up? (She doesn't have a login here.)
It’s taken me a lot of years, but I’ve come around to this: If you’re dumb, surround yourself with smart people. And if you’re smart, surround yourself with smart people who disagree with you.

The Retirement Roll Call uses the protocols set forth by Lady Victoria, our founding mother 8-)

Lady Victoria specifically addressed this question and issued the following pronouncement:
VictoriaF wrote:I don't record spouses' retirement dates and ages. One way to include spouses is to encourage them to become Bogleheads.
May I say this diplomatically - there is no way I would violate Victoria's protocols (and run the risk of having her come after me) :mrgreen:

On the 16th I'm going to call in "well".
David Jay is a musical Boglehead, music gets him going! Congratulations on your final agreement with the boss and your punch out date. We'll put it on the Roll Call.

Now we don't have to ask what you'll be up to in retirement. We saw you are organizing a West Michigan Bogleheads local chapter. Congratulations on your new job and best wishes for a successful local chapter.

In order to get it going, you need e-n-e-r-g-y, so your friends here on the Roll Call are providing you with some musical energy to get your local chapter going. Just turn your speakers up REAL LOUD to welcome :musical_note: David Jay's Michigan Bogleheads! :musical_note:

Good! Another CPA :D We kind of have a policy around the Bogleheads forum that all CPAs and tax-types are not allowed to retire unless they promise not to leave us - we all need lots of tax advice on this forum :wink: And here's an idea - take your extra "fun money" and head to Saratoga in August, why you might even bank some extra :moneybag

Agreed! At the top right corner of my retirement planning spreadsheet, I have 2(!) countdowns going;

(K2= date and time my retirement starts)
By calendar days
=INT(K2-NOW())&" Days "&HOUR(MOD(K2-NOW(),1))&" Hour "&MINUTE(MOD(K2-NOW(),1))&" Minutes"

By working days
=NETWORKDAYS(TODAY(),K2, DATEVALUE({"11/22/2018","11/23/2018","12/24/2018","12/25/2018","12/31/2018","1/1/2018"}))

Count me in as another 62 year old member of the Jan 15 club!

Many thanks to the Bogleheads who helped me clarify my thinking and validate that I really can do this - those who responded directly to my questions and the many more who posted invaluable resources here for me to learn from. I am in your debt. (Hopefully, nobody else's!)

Dear lacseul,
Welcome to this Awesome Retirement Class!

Wow, 50 years as a pilot - you've probably been up in the air longer than you've been on the ground :mrgreen: Time to grab some boots and tromp around mother earth, or do you have other plans? Please let us know how the final flight feels :happy

Thank you Spindrift, we'll change your age upon re-boot, but 57 is still a great age to retire! Actually, any age is a great age to retire :mrgreen:

Welcome to the Bogleheads, Tzoellner, and congratulations on your New Years Day retirement!

Enjoy your retirement plans research :happy - sure beats researching small cap value funds or the latest tax laws :mrgreen:

Please let us know what you decide to do and how you plan to finance it.

Nice post Cyclist! We certainly understand your gratitude for this wonderful forum helping you navigate your road to retirement :beer

You're on this fabulous Roll Call - only 5 more weeks to go!

So, what are your plans? Oh dear, please don't tell us you're planning to go from Alaska to Argentina on top of a thin piece of metal 4 feet high weighing one pound, with 2 narrow wheels with lots of thin spokes, no steering wheel (only a bar with thin foam handles), gears with little wires that only go forward with no reverse, plastic pedals, a tiny mirror, a saddle seat as soft as a rock, and no holder for your Starbucks mug :P

June for me. My wife turns 65 that month (I'll be 67). I recently told my boss I'd either retire now or they could let me cut back to 4 days a week, in which case I'd stay until June. My wife is a retired teacher (she has a pension). We'll be applying for my wife's SS in the next few months and I'll get just a spousal benefit until I turn 70 and start my own SS. Using the MaximizeMySocialSecurity website, we get an estimate that we'll only be losing about $40,000 over the next 20 years by starting my wife's SS early and in the 5 years between her 65th birthday and her 70th year, we'll be getting $130,000 from SS. I'm not sure what I'll do yet, but I'm looking forward to less stress.

Best of luck and best wishes to all my fellow near retirees and those who have come before and those who'll be following us!

Last day at my job beginning at the end of May to mid June timeframe. I'll officially be off the books by the end of August. Very much looking forward to "the day" and will be doing #3, just fading away. I work at a remote location from my headquarters so fading away won't be that tough.

Self quoting here :wink:

Still on track, and I’m very pleased with how quickly time is going by. 5.5 more months to go. Submitting my retirement paperwork next week, headquarters has approved my departure plan, including extended vacation time at the end. Very grateful and pleasantly surprised at their approval and support.

I'll be stopping work in 10 days, I am 59 years old and getting stoked!

Will be rolling my pension and 401k to Vanguard where I already hold a small Roth and a taxable brokerage of modest proportions.

Welcome to the Bogleheads MarkDK, and congratulations on your retirement and "getting stoked"!

According to Google, "getting stoked" is "to be completely and intensely enthusiastic, exhilarated, or excited about something. Being stoked is the epitome of all being. When one is stoked, there is no limit to what one can do."

You must have some awesome adventures planned for your retirement 8-)

Looks like your R-date is Dec. 19, 2018, so I moved your post to our Roll Call for the Retirement Class of 2018 :happy

Hi psrobinson - Welcome to the Bogleheads and what a nice first post: your retirement plans :happy

"Looking forward to less stress." oohh we hear you and can confirm it will be like a heavy load lifted from your shoulders. It may take a while to sink in, but before you know it, you'll feel lighter and happier.

Enjoy your freedom in this next phase of your life. :D

For one reason or another this list offered a slight chill down my spine with excitement. I admire greatly what this list represents and thought I don’t know any of you as I’ve just started my Bogle journey I wish you good luck and congratulations!

Stay excited Tomwood! Before you know it, you will be closer and closer to retirement, but don't forget to live a great life along the way :happy

Remind me and I'll put you on the 2048 Retirement Roll Call :wink:

The latest ACA ruling may cause a delay, but as of now you can update my info and put me down for 12/31/2019. I will be 60 - 3 months shy of 61.

Hi All:

First post, but have been lurking for the last two years. I will be retiring March 29th, 2019 age 58. My wife will be following May 31st age 55. My boss asked me why I picked March 29th. I told him it was at the end of a month, a Friday and payday. :beer

Can't wait.

Yes, I left as a happy camper, on very good terms! I could not have been treated better.

Thought you might like this, a great coincidence. On GrammaCassie’s “One year to retirement” thread:

1/15/2019 seems more appropriate. One more year syndrome is not needed. Life is short!
That's a great idea, I think I will just do that :D

^^^^^ and another "great coincidence" . . .

Looks like the normally sage, sensible, sound and sober David Jay has gone delirious with his Retirement Day approaching :D

This is what he posted - while clearing out his office - on his most recent "financial" thread - which was about Undershirts :shock: - where he wondered if Undershirts were a market indicator :oops:
