I thought comic art and statues were my retirement plan.

Retirement is always on my mind but over the last few years its become a priority. I've seen too many people in their 50s and 60s lose everything and I don't want to be in their shoes.

I contribute to my 401k at work and my company matches me on the first 5 percent. I also contribute to a Roth account and dabble in the stock market. The other big thing I'm working on is making sure my house will be paid off well before I plan on retiring. The last thing I want to worry about is a mortgage payment during retirement.

Look at KMP, ETP, BWP, TGP. Pay real nice dividends and are in an industry I feel has lots of growth potential.

I've been actively thinking about retirement for about the last 3 years (I'm 43 now).

The good news is that I have no debt and my expenses are relatively light as I have no dependents, the home is fully paid for, and, aside from collecting, have no expensive habits.

The plan is a simple one;

a. Continue to work full-time until age 55,
b. Work part-time until age 65, (earn 25% of current income)
c. Start collecting military pension at age 55, (provides 50% of current income)
d. Start drawing on retirement income from savings at age 65, (can expect a return equal to 10-20 % of current income)
e. Start collecting federal pension at age 67 (earns about 25 % of current income).

Looks like you are all set.

I'm banking on the investment I've recently made into this manufacturing co. I have 2 partners and we've put a substantial amount of $ into it. I'm hoping to kick ass for a few years (5) and either sellout to a larger company or to my current partners.

I also have and IRA for the Mrs and a Simple Plan for myself. She can bank $5,000 tax free a year and I can go $11,500 or $13,500 per year.

I plan on setting fire to one of my apartment buildings and dying in the explos uh I mean the tragic fire that claimed my life and having my girlfriend collect the life insurance I have then she's got to go.

I have a good government pension that I contribute to. While I could live off that and the eventual federal pension everyone gets I do still contribute to RRSP's (Canadian equivalent of 401k's) and have become more aggressive in my investing over the last couple years. 25 years of service to retire with a full pension for me but I will only be 45 when that milestone comes. Save for a lucrative job with a different employer I will likely work for 10 years past that.
