High returns in equity markets combined with the abnormalities the workplace has experienced in the past year and a half are leading more people to ask the question, “Can I retire now?”

If you are younger and asking this question, you’ll have more challenges in your retirement plan than a typical retiree who retires at age 65. Retiring early can be done with the proper plan in place, but it comes with unique challenges.

The first step in any retirement plan is to think about the lifestyle you want to live. Many retirees go through a psychological struggle once they realize how much free time they have. Also, your idea of early retirement could simply mean leaving your current job and working part-time somewhere.
