30 Best Jobs If You Want to Retire Early

GOBankingRates Logo By Gabrielle Olya of GOBankingRates | Slide 1 of 32: Even if you love your job, it’s hard not to fantasize about an early retirement. But the reality is that many Americans will end up having to work past the traditional retirement age of 65 due to a number of factors, including longer life expectancy, stagnant wages and a lack of jobs that offer a pension plan to guarantee income in retirement. Many people simply won’t be able to save enough to retire comfortably before 65 — you’d need to have saved over $1 million, regardless of your state, another GOBankingRates study found. But some jobs offer a better chance at an early retirement than others.
GOBankingRates determined the best jobs for those who want to retire before 65 by looking at the age people in each occupation expect to retire, the average employer 401(k) contribution per hour of work, average salary and the average retirement savings someone in that occupation would have saved in a 401(k) by the early retirement age, 62. If you want to retire early, these are the best jobs if you want to retire rich.
