Too bad it's not CSRS. At 60 yo, you must have just missed the cutoff.

No, I don't really belong on an early retirement forum, but I guess I can dream, right? As I posted in my introduction I suffer from "bag lady syndrome" and thus plan to work for awhile yet. No pension, although I do have some good savings accumulating. We'll see how I feel when I'm 65.
You are quite welcome here. Like your attitude. oldtrig

*Retirement age could happen anytime now. Every two years they do a retention board to see if they want to keep people around that have made their vested military years.
