Financial Independence, Retire Early (FIRE) is a movement dedicated to the idea that retirement is about having enough assets to sustain you for life, rather than an age at which you stop working. The FIRE movement advocates tight control over lifestyle expenses, a high savings rate and a 4% portfolio drawdown rate upon independence.
