Hi - new ER

I've been lurking behind DW's moniker for about a year so thought it was about time to get legal. ER'd two weeks ago - planned, reviewed, reviewed, reviewed and confirmed before jumping - JG may be amusing but not my lifestyle!!!
Monday tomorrow, no sweat - hooray!

Re: Hi - new ER

Not Ginger, keep guessing though this could get interesting.

What am I doing?

Still getting used to the no work routine (or lack thereof).

Organising medical, dental and vision insurance - easy during COBRA but what next?* Plenty of time to decide but your inputs welcome - need to consider 3 teenagers, does it make sense to assume they will get their own coverage when (if?) they go off to college? Thinking of disaster only medical, VSP for vision (~$30/month is cheap for all our check ups and glasses/contacts), no ideas on dental.

Meeting outplacement agent tomorrow - will probably spend most of an hour explaining that I'm FI and RE and only interested in non-economic suggestions. May be amusing, may be a PIA. Who cares? I've got plenty of time and I'm not paying.

Sure - you ask me 20 questions and I'll see if I want to answer them.

DW is still thinking about what I am allowed to say to the Jenna Jameson comment!!!!

Hey F M - one piece of advice. Since you do not need the outplacement services you may be able to work a deal for them to give you a % in cash and they can keep a cut. I know people who did this. Jo Jo

Re: Hi - new ER

Hi, FM

My DH & I are self employed so have never had great medical coverage. Always high deductables with basics for major medical. Anyway, last year we needed to change policies and I ended up getting 4 separate policies with Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Still high deductable, but we won't need to worry about changing poliicies when our girls leave the nest (17 & 19 y.o.) - they can carry on with theirs or change over to something else later. We are all in good health so that helps. I would be interested in hearing how others handled taking on health insurance after ER.

No guess as to your "secret" identity - I'm "clueless"! : Good luck in your ER and enjoy yourself!

Jane

Even Greg, (AKA Apocolypse...) had the intestinal fortitude to admit he was Mr. Martha. If he could find it within himself to reveal he's sleeping with a lawyer, what on earth are you worried about disclosing? Give it up and come out of the closet keyboard.

Maybe someone who has access to the IP logging can compare FMAll's IP with the IP of other posters to determine his identity. 8)

I just got the joke of your screen name - F em all!! ha ha!

My nickname for my portfolio is "F*** You money".

Okay, maybe not CG since F M mentioned COBRA which is native to the US.
