Maybe you've put thoughts of an early retirement out of mind, but think again. With unemployment figures in the stratosphere, many early retirement strategies may come in handy anyway. DEATH AND PAPERWORKEarly-retirement.org is an online community and moderated discussion forum providing a place for people in, or aiming for, early retirement to share ideas and strategies, especially on money matters. When we checked, discussion threads were dealing with topics that included ``Family & money & death & paperwork,'' ``Potential Roth stumbling blocks,'' and, of course, stock picking. www.early-retirement.org AVERAGE YOUIf you're wondering how early retirement would affect your Social Security payments, check out this chart provided by the U.S. Social Security Administration. Currently, you can start drawing Social Security when you're 62 years old. But the benefit is reduced. The government contends that, generally, ``early or late retirement will give you about the same total Social Security benefits over your lifetime.'' Of course, that's based on averages, so what really matters is when you yourself die. And that's typically hard to predict. www.socialsecurity.gov/retire2/agereduction.htm EXTREME RETIREMENT Aimed at ``independent thinkers and creative radicals,'' this blog called Early Retirement Extreme advocates simpler living as the fast track to an early retirement. Say you lived on half your income and saved the rest. You could, conceivably, accumulate a retirement fund in a fraction of the normal time -- a few years instead of decades. Hey, and you might not even notice the recessions. http://earlyretirementextreme.com/ FORCING THE ISSUE Early retirement can be an employer's tactic for reducing the workforce. If you get a so-called offer for early retirement from the boss -- or if you think one might be coming -- this page at Lawyers.com provides some food for thought. Can you get unemployment benefits if you accept an early retirement package? Would a lump-sum payment be taxed as a bonus? Get the answers before deciding. http://labor-employment-law.lawyers.com/Buyout-and-Early-Retirement-Packages.html
