Retiring early is overrated. Just live frugally and find a cushy job that minimizes hours but still gives you good health benefits, steady income, etc.

Depends what your meaning of retirement is. For me, I don’t necessarily plan to retire early, but I do plan to become financial independent relatively early (goal is to grow the portfolio large enough to allow for 100k/year of passive income in perpetuity) so that I’m free to work as much or as little as I feel with limited risk to my family

Until that cushy job is gone and you are stressed about finding the next job to make a living.

I would venture to say that no one on this app has a cushy job

Ahem teacher anyone??

Ok, I am already retired and have a pension, retirement accounts, etc. For some, retirement does not mean lack of financial security or the cessation or all work. It does mean enjoying what you do and getting paid for it to boot.

Will it exceed the limit and if so, what should I do? 22 here, not too familiar with the process. Thanks!
