Re: ER and new career?

Hi Bill, You wouldn't by chance be a VZ employee? Some of the details mentioned in your post made it appear that you might be. I also pulled the plug on 11/21, and all I can say is that I have never felt more relaxed and confident in my decision. I certainly agonized for several weeks after the package was announced, and I guess the biggest concern for me was leaving with only 64% medical coverage. Currently, I plan to work part time and hopefully in another 4-5 years can comfortably totally retire.

Good luck and enjoy your new life!


Doing things today that others won't, to do things tomorrow that others can't. Of course I'm referring to workouts, not robbing banks.

Re: ER and new career?

DFW_M5 (Doug),

Yes, VZ was the one. A little over two weeks ago and still smiling. Fortunately, I passed the 30 year mark (with the help of unused VT) and have the full 80% medical benefit. The part time work will keep me busy and in the business loop.

Three years ago, we lived in the DFW area (Highland Village). Moved to Arizona and telecommuted for that entire three year time frame.

Best of luck to you in your "retirement" years. Glad you found this board and the Retire Early Home Page. Great information here.

Sign me Smiling in Phoenix.
