I'm single (have a serious gf but not planning on getting married)
At age 48 I will receive a pension of about $1700/month (after health ins & taxes). I will not receive a cola on it until 65
All Bills are paid - no debt. I have tracked my expenses for the last 2 years and they are about $33,000 a year. With not working, I know I could shave some of that off in gas, using coupons, and just general cutting back.
I have about $100,000 in a money market account and about $400,000 in my TSP.
I plan to live on the $1700 along with a part time job that will bring roughly $1,000/month for as long as I can. Once it starts to get too tight, I will do an annuity on my tsp which should put me back in "comfortable" shape until I can start taking SS.
p.s. I have no kids and am in good health (thus far)
Thoughts? I tried to use the firecalc but it looks like it's just for figuring out how long our IRA will last you. ??
