2.8 years to go....looking for part time retirement into

I am a real estate broker, and was in the financial planning and insurance business before that. I am planning to wind down, and (mostly) retire in a couple of years, but will need to work a little (mainly to keep paying SSA for myself and wife, to eliminate low earning or 0 years earned). Any ideas from those in a similar situation.......did you find good part time work with flexable scheduling? Any part time jobs with health Ins? (A huge concern since we are in our mid 50's). Thanks, btb

Bruce, have you run some "what ifs" on the online SS retirement calculator? If not, do so and plug in zero earnings going forward. If you're in your mid 50's and have worked for the past 30 years or so, you should find that anything you contribute in the future will have very little impact on your SS benefits.

Numbers is hard.

Retired in 2005 at age 58, no pension

Itís possible to work for the federal government part time and obtain health insurance coverage. Here's a link with info on how to carry this coverage into retirement:

Insurance Programs

Here are a couple of articles about private companies offering health care benefits to part timers: t=31
