Are you a retiree who has a smaller nest egg than you’d planned for — but who is still enjoying a high-quality, satisfying retirement? If so, Money magazine would like to interview you for an upcoming story.

Maybe you had a setback — your investments took a big hit in the market downturn, or you retired early because of a health issue or job loss. Maybe you just tired of the rat race and quit work sooner than you had planned. In any case, we are looking for retirees and near-retirees who are living on less income than expected but are still able to enjoy their retirement life.

We want to know how much you have saved, the reason for your smaller nest egg and what strategies you’re using to adjust to a lower income. Are you working a part-time job, cutting expenses, moving to a lower-cost area, or trying to boost your investment income? Are you finding unexpected benefits from this different lifestyle — for example, fulfillment from a part-time job or less stress after downsizing? We’d love to know how you’re living on less but still living well.

If you’re interested in sharing your experience and advice for an upcoming story, please fill out this brief,
form. None of the information you supply here will be published unless you give us the okay in a follow-up interview.
