Plan for Retirement

So you want to retire early? What you can do now to prepare

You’ve done your time. You’ve had a long (and hopefully rewarding) career and are ready to ease into retirement. There’s one problem. You’re not quite officially retirement age yet. You have a few years (maybe more) until you reach age 62 and can start receiving Social Security. And a few more years still until you hit age 65 and can enroll in Medicare.

You’re more than ready to retire early, but can you really afford to? The good news is that it is possible with some careful planning and preparation.
