I was born in 1981, so I have roughly 24 more years until I can retire. If I decide to break it down by months, days, and hours, I will probably start crying, so for the sake of my workplace, I’ll just leave it at 24. Now, that is just if I want to get FULL Social Security Benefits and retire when I reach 67.

On average, people in Washington retire a little earlier, at the age of 64. That seems like a reasonable goal (you know, save me 3 years). But what will you do when you retire? Where should you move to and live?

Some have found a way to hack the system and live on a world cruise for their retirement. What a great and bold idea. I’m not that courageous. I’m a homebody and would miss my family too much.
