Hope to be able to retire at 66 1/2 when I am eligible for full social security.

Dream that I will be able to retired at 62 when I am eligible for reduced social security.

30 Does it count that I have decided to quit my job and be a SAHM? I don't need to work and as of right now, don't plan on returning to the workforce ever. I do plan on joining charity boards and volunteering though.

I'm 56 and I haven't worked full-time since 2009. I work about 20 hours/week, which is fine with me. I could see myself working about this much until around 62. I'd really like to retire earlier than that, but I had a job offer I couldn't refuse so for now, I'm working at home and going into the office once a week. It gives me a LOT of flexibility ( and a good income), so it doesn't make sense for me to retire just yet.

Nope. Worked in IT for a private firm for 30 years. They had some great retirement programs and I took full advantage of them.

I quit working full-time when my oldest was born and I was 28. I don't plan to ever work full-time again, even when the kids are in high school or college. There's always stuff to do to keep the house running, and when I worked f/t I hated spending my nights and weekends catching up on laundry and cleaning. I'd rather do it during the day and be able to relax and spend time with my husband in the evenings. Right now my kids are both in elementary school and I work 3-4 days/week from 9:00-12:00/1:00. I work maybe 20-30 hours in an average month depending on how busy the office is (more hours in tax season, fewer in the fall when all deadlines are past). Later on I might go back to closer to 20 hrs/week, but I like having time to myself.

Oh and my husband knows I don't ever plan to work f/t again and is OK with it.

I plan to retire in about 10 years or so, when I'm in my mid-fifties.

Since I AM going to win the lottery someday soon though, my plans will, of course, change. ; )

I already left the 40+ world when DS was born. (I took a few years at home, and now work anywhere from 0-35, depending on the week, as a per diem teacher.)

If I go back to anything full time, I'll likely "retire" when my Social Security kicks in, but still do a little part time work to keep my brain sharp, until whenever it becomes a physical problem to do so.

My grandmother worked way beyond the age she was "supposed to", but was one of the happiest people I knew. I'd like to be like her.
