DH is going to move into the Class of 2013. He had planned to retire this year at age 55, but he works for an aerospace contractor. Knowing that DH was planning to retire this year, last week one of the VPs told DH that it "might pay" to wait until after the beginning of the new year (i.e. probable layoff/severance package offer in the first quarter).

We're both anxious to get this retirement show on the road and don't want to kick the can down the road for much longer, but I guess 26 weeks of severance pay would be pretty sweet.

Please add us to the list.

Finally broke down and sat down with a financial planner to go over "The ER plan". We will get his report back in a few weeks, hopefully no big surprises but nice to have a second set of eyes look things over!! Like I told him I will only retire once (hopefully) but he has gone through it many times with his other clients so hope he can give me some valuable input. Looking forward to next July!!

After meticulously calculating the earnings differential between retiring 1/5/2013 and every week subsequent, I have officially determined my best value is either 1/31/2013 or 4/5/2013.

4/5/2013 would be best for bonus reasons....but weeks like this past week make 1/31/2013 look a whole lot more appealing.

Not to mention, DH and I just bought the fifth wheel we have been saving for to use in our retirement.
