Hello good people

I am Mike, I was recently let go from my position of 20 years, I am 58 and probably will not go back to work. I have been a saver most of my life but not sure if what we have is enough to last. we will make a stab at anyway.

Mike

Welcome Mike.

While you're stabbing, run your numbers through FIRECalc (see link near the bottom of the page) and see what it tells you.

Thanks, I think we will be fine, the only debt we have is the house, my wife has a pension of 14400 yr and Insurance at 62 I get a 631.00 month pension
plus hopefully SSI and we have 500,000.00 in investments. We just need to grow the pile some as we use spend some.
Mike
