BUT my survivor's benefits are quite a bit reduced and I'm enough younger that I'd have to fund a gap before I draw SS. The FIRECALC for me alone is not quite as great as for the two of us together. So I'm working a little longer to shore up the savings - though he is recently retired. We will try to take some fun vacations to help get us to the point where we are both retired.

Interesting - I've never run Firecalc for just one of us. I have always just assumed, because we both have sizable 401Ks that the other would be fine with the 50% drop in the other's pension. Probably should go run those scenarios just to be sure....!

Before I retired, I thought it was kind of fun to put my countdown in my signature line. I changed it every day, manually and enjoyed doing so immensely.

Pretty soon, you'll have fewer than 600 days to go.

That's right around the corner. I have to hang on to meet the eligibility requirements for retirement from my employer (fed govt) If I check out early it messes me up for health care & my pension. Instead of beginning immediately, my monthly retirement pay would not start until age 60, and in that case, I might as well stay on the job, because I'd have to work someplace else. So....gotta tough it out just a little longer....Jan 18, 2013 on my 55th birthday.

Marty, I'm city gov. 55 would be better for me (50 is the age we can begin to retire) but these days are getting worse for me there. Luckily retire with medical fully paid by city. Just trying to figure how much monthly income is enough for me.

That's really good...fed retirees still have to pay their part of the health coverage. Currently, I'm paying $200 per 2 weeks, so roughly will be a little north of $400 per month when retired...not considering increases which of course happen every year. My pension will be around the 70% of high-3 average for me, with just under 36 yrs. Not gonna be rich but also won't have to sleep under a bridge...

Yeah Marty!

I've had to revise mine to one year later than I thought. We are in contract negotiations and it's not looking good! So I may well be class of 2014.
