    I would say never but if your talking about having 100% choice with what I do with my time then 5 years from now :)

    For me, I don't know. I don't know how long I will live for so won't think about retirement now. Maybe when dementia strikes?

    41 with a passive household income around 300k in rough figures.
    Hoping for early next year.

    Bran, if you can retire next week you can give free medical treatment to the needy.

    Why would I do that? Maybe somewhere that needs it, or that I want to go. There was an offer to go to Samoa last month to teach them a certain operation. I'd love to do that sort of stuff.

    It was 40, but that's going to be tight, so let's say going down to 3 days a week by age 45, which should be very much possible. Plus I think it would be better for me to have a part time job than being completely retired anyway.

    Two years ago.
    However the previous 10 years I was working two days a week in a job I loved. Certainly did not need the money, just stayed because I wanted to.

    Impressive @Ace in the Hole! Is the $300K passive income purely from property or other investments?

    I don't plan to retire because I love my career. But I do like to have a passive stream of income and hopefully I will be able to pull 6k p/m within the next 5 years.

    Then I realised that I am a teacher. And I don't derive a huge amount of enjoyment out of it unless the trainee is a star.

    What I found with voluntary work unless you love what you are doing there is no point, otherwise it's just another job and it won't last

    Been a while since I left my day job, now I do what I really love, it's not always fun, but I don't see myself giving it away any time soon. I have needy children....
