I've been working in Lufkin for the last 5 years. Been driving back & forth between there & Bossier City, LA all that time every weekend.

I just submitted my official 2-weeks notice this morning--last day Jan. 3. So I guess that makes me Class of 2014!

Just a few more hours in which to hear the four things which people at work say:
1) Congratulations! (my favorite)
2) Take me with you/I'm jealous! (my other favorite)
3) Are you coming back in some capacity? [suuure, I'll be prowling the halls looking for brains to eat!]
4) Are you staying in the area? (Many retirees move back to the cheaper cost-of-living states they came from).

2014 is my target year with three possible dates. My 401k will be vested on 4/11 - I consider this to be a critical date. Being on payroll as of June 30th qualifies me for my annual bonus - a nice to have. Finishing out the year on 12/31/14 will pad the bank account and make DH happy. Goal is to get to 4/11 and decide from there. I'm not sure if the year will drag or fly by?

Ok....my date has changed once again.... I've been "persuaded" to work a few more months, but at least I'll be in a better location....same state & town as my wife & kids. So...January '14 is out. However...it will still be SOMETIME in 2014. Just using the few extra months to add to my TSP. I will NOT work one single day of 2015!

I started it!

We have a new retirement notification system and retirement rules for this year, and I initiated my retirement process at 12:01 am CST this morning. Just a few more weeks to go.

Congratulations!

I can't tell all of you have thrilled/excited/elated I have been since I made the decision to move my date up by 14 months. (Actually God told me to do it but I don't think we are allowed to talk about faith and prayer on this web site). My health was being ruined by stress and He said "Get Out, your work here is done, but stay until you turn 54!"

I know that 2014 will be the BEST YEAR EVER for everyone of us.

We will be "set free" to follow our dreams, our callings, our missions, whatever that may be to each one of you.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

I'm still planning on Mar 31 or Apr 30, 2014 to wind it up. Will keep folks posted. Congratulations to everyone in the Class of 2013 and wishes for a fabulous New Year to those on the list for 2014. Cheers.

I've been approved for a voluntary layoff as part of an upcoming reduction in force at my MegaCorp. Mega hasn't provided an actual date other than sometime in "late January". Worst-case scenario suggests Jan 30 which would give me 17 working days until freedom! Please add me firmly to the Class of 2014!

Woo-hoo! "Voluntary" as in "We will pay you to leave," I presume?

Absolutely. One week per year of service + unused vacation = 38 weeks. :-)
