Empower Retirement announced a new app for iPhones and Apple watches Wednesday that lets users count down the days until they can stop working forever.

The Colorado-based retirement planning company’s 8 million members can start planning their days by the beach immediately. The company released the app Friday in the Apple app store.

“For participants, this is a game changer in how they experience their retirement plan,” Empower Retirement president Edmund F. Murphy said in a statement.

“These users will literally have information that’s even closer than their fingertips. It’s a remarkable development for participants who are actively thinking about their financial future.”
