I am in a postion where I can simply start slowing down wihout totally retiring. I am still healthy, actve, and like what I do. . . and my fiancee is 9 years younger than me. There is no reason for me to retire and sit at home waiting for her to get home from her job. I will start drawing my Socal Security retirement at age 70 and just bank it for a few years.41

I don’t expect to ever be able to retire. The industry in which I had specialized expertise sank, now they say I’m too experienced to get back into it at a lower level. Inflation in staple goods is ripping and jobs that pay well are very hard to get. The problem is what would happen if I become disabled or ill and cannot work in my old age. All because of our evil elites who deindustrialized in order to enrich themselves on cheap labor and globalization, which is why I say: Clear them out!30
Oh yeah Every day, I worked 12 to 16 hours 7 days a week for more than 15 years built a business only to get cheated out of it by my childhood friend with the help of unsuspected person who made sure he is two steps ahead that was my wife. I had a family, successful business, the white picked fence, several vehicles and sublime credit. I should now be retired but instead I found myself a full time single parent that’s working pay check to pay check so yes I worry about it every day. Or maybe I shouldn’t since it’s not an option.10
I don't plan on retiring till I am in my 60's. I could retire now, but, I enjoy my job too much.
The plan is to be able to head wherever want. My daughter should be well into her career by then, and my girlfriend has an at home business. If one or both want to go that is fine, if not, I plan on jumping in the truck or a plane and just heading out myself.
This is something I already do to a certain extent, I would just do it whenever I feel like when I am retired.20
I retired pre Covid. Was able to retire at sixty after 41 years with same company on a decent pension. Have travelled in the US and Canada on nice vacations. Before and after Covid.
Not bragging! But the vacations will be less since the Idiot in Chief ruined the economy!14
I was thinking of retiring after I lost my job because of covid. Then we got a potted plant in the White House and the cost of everything has doubled and the stock market has tanked. I found another job and maybe if things keep going like this I don't see how anyone can afford to retire. I know people that are retired and all they do all day is watch TV. That is not my idea of retirement20
I am kinda retired because I enjoy my job so much. So work is not like that hard. I can retire in 4 years or so. But I have other plans to do other things.
financially we are okay…working for fun.10
Nope. Once retirees had their pensions stolen from them in 2008, I knew I would not be able to retire.40
Mine is a year away. Sometimes I wish it were here now and other times I wish it were 20 years away…. Just hope to get everything paid off before that time comes.11
I'm there, I don' tknow what to do when I grow up... I have ideas.
until then I'll hang out on gag and ride my bike.10
I do think about retirement, but I can't say that I can relate to your update. As you know, I'm not in the United States.10
if it's not before a mass extinction it's still gonna be soon and i don't have time to retire10
My retirement will be in a mass burial provided by the government10
Meh, not that fussed. I hate having too much free time.10
I don’t know if will ever be able to afford to retire unfortunately, definitely will need to move if I do in 10 years10
A little. I've been putting away for a 401k and have over five grand right now, having only started some time last year.11
If we are going to maintain a decent level of living, we will never be able to retire.10
Not really. Retirement seems a long way off yet for me.10
Like most men, I expect to die at work. All the saving I am doing is with an eye to leaving something for my kid.10
I’m still far from retiring but that doesn’t mean I haven’t planned my future beyond employment.10
All the time. But technically I'm quasi-retired now.10

I officially retired when I was 62 and could take Social Security. I get a small pension from my former job and put a lot of money into a 401(k) during my life.
My wife started receiving Social Security in 2020 but still works because she is self employed and likes her job.
We've traveled and done some really fun things together in our 26 years of marriage and even since I retired. But we were talking the other day about how hard is has become to travel in the last few years with covid restrictions and skyrocketing prices. We had planned to do a lot of traveling after retirement, but the "system" seems bound and determined to restrict people more and more. Now they using climate change as an excuse. Evil motherfuckers.
