First Pension Check just arrived

I'm so excited!! Just got my first pension check (very small, but every bit helps). We're both 55. I'm still working but at a much lower paying second career, self-employed. This makes me happy for now. My DH retires from megacorp in September so we'll get his check then. YIPPEEEE! It's really happening.

It's such a neat concept! It is still hard for me to believe that I am not going to work and they are still sending me money!

C o n g r a t u l a t i o n s.

Pensions are good. First yours, then his, then two social security checks. And all you have to do is just keep living.
