I'm pleasantly surprised that people are commenting on this topic.

 

I'd like to invite people to describe the conditions of their retirement.

 

Did they retire at the exact age they had planned without external pressure?


Were they nudged into earlier retirement because of job loss and/or health problems?

 

Do early retirees regret not waiting? Do later retirees regret waiting?

 

Etc.

I was 'restructured' into a job that required legal qualifications, which I didn't have. I guess it was the organisation's retirement plan for me. I lasted a year before exiting at 62. Happy that I am enjoying my life and am no longer part of that world. Yeah, and I know how fortunate I am.

I had planned on retiring at 50 but was told by Standard Life i could not access my pension with them until i was 55, worked on saved more and retired this year at 55, though did not need to withdraw anything from my pension anyway, I have zero regrets about retiring early, i wanted to do it while i was young enough to enjoy it, who knows what tomorrow may bring. i see too many famous people popping off early

I have been working from the age of 15, my final job offered me early release so I took what they offered at 58, my dad never made it to retirement (59) which worried me slightly, anyway, here I am, happily retired and enjoying life as much as the aches & pains will let me 🙂 been here 8 years, life could be a lot worse.
