Re: Hi, I am new here

What do you want to do? Jockey for a new position or take the $ and run? Will what you get from the company along with any severance package and or unemployment be adequate? Do you have intrests and activities to pursue with lottsa time? Think about what you need vs. want.

Well you are 62, and you would get a pension, HOW MUCH? SS How Much?

You only know how much money you need a month.

Good Luck.

I quit at 50. With a pension and now I do stupid fun part time work with no mortgage and low taxes.

Rjohn,

I don't think that anyone can intelligently comment on your situation without more info?

Re: Hi, I am new here

If you tell us what you want to do than there will be people to help you. If you need people to tell you how to run your life, this part is up to you. There is a lot of good information here when you have made your decision. I wish you all the best on your decision.
