The prevailing options have been at both ends of the spectrum

The prevailing options have been at both ends of the spectrum – retire early or later. Here are a few:

  • Retire June 9, day after turning 55
  • Retire September 28, day after the official 30-year anniversary.
  • Retire December 31, end of the year.
  • Retire the same day Bob Iger retires (which was originally set for 2015, but he’s extended his contract to 2016) (and he’s since extended it to 2018).
  • Keep working indefinitely and retire in 2015, 2016, or even later.

These are all options that have never been experienced before, so there is no obvious, prevailing wisdom.
